Our Emergency Medical Services

Providing prompt, high-quality Emergency Medical Services (EMS) to our community is one of our highest priorities.

All Marysville Fire District firefighters are certified as either Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) to provide basic life support services or Paramedics to provide advanced life support. Most of the 911 calls we receive are medical emergencies. In 2019, we responded to 12,265 medical calls.

"I realized at 19 that I wanted to help people...and I wanted to be able to give back to my community."

 

Kate Songhurst, Marysville Fire District Captain/Paramedic

 

Marysville Fire District employees more than 90 emergency medical technicians and 30 paramedics. 

 

The types of calls we respond to include: acute pain, anaphylaxis, apnea, burn, cardiac arrest, drowning, fainting, fall, gun shot or stab wounds, head injury, hemorrhage, hypoglocemia, hypotension, hypothermia, mass casualty incident, motor vehicle collisions, musculoskeletal injury, obstetrics, overdose, physical trauma, poisoning, respiratory distress, siezure, shock, spinal injury, stroke

 

In 2019, we responded to 60 cardiac arrest patients. Ten of those patients fully recovered.

That rate is above the national average for patient survival to hospital discharge after EMS-treated cardiac arrest, which is about 10 percent.
