DVEMS Drill night

With a little help from our youngest-future member.

Drill for our newest child restraint system.


Members of EMS Company 3 provide a hands on demonstration of the LUCAS™ Chest Compression System it is a safe and efficient tool that standardizes chest compressions in accordance with the latest scientific guidelines. It provides the same quality for all patients and over time, independent of transport conditions, rescuer fatigue, or variability in the experience level of the caregiver. By doing this, it frees up rescuers to focus on other life-saving tasks and creates new rescue opportunities.

We are currently raising funds to acquire this tool for our community. If you would like to make a donation, please contact us.


In late 2015 we acquired a new 4X4 ambulance.

Your feedback is important to us!

Take it a step further; many departments also have 3/30 personnel, 4/40 personnel, etc. It is not too difficult to spot those folks; they are the ones that think they know it all and their way is the best way. One of the firefighters ... (Full Story)
