Emergency Medical Services
Emergency medical services (EMS), sometimes known as ambulance services or paramedic services, are a type of emergency service dedicated to providing out-of-hospital acute medical care, transport to definitive care, and other medical transport to patients with illnesses and injuries which prevent the patient from transporting themselves.
The goal of the Poulsbo Fire Department's EMS program is to provide high quality medical treatment to those in need of urgent medical care, with the goal of satisfactorily treating the presenting conditions, and, when necessary, provide what stabilizing treatment is possible while transporting the patient to the hospital Emergency Department or other definitive care site.
The Poulsbo Fire Department provides EMS services and transport to the entire community at both the basic and advanced life support levels. Our EMT's and Paramedics are highly trained medical professionals, providing some of the very best out-of-hospital care available in the country.
The Poulsbo Fire Department's providers work under the direction of Dr. Jeffrey Rogers, the Kitsap County Medical Program Director.
