Hello to our Community from the PFD EMS Team!

The PFD (EMS) Emergency Medical Services Team is an important division of the Pensaukee Volunteer Fire Department. Just like a bridge needs strong pillars for support, the EMS team needs strong, capable members to give the best level of care to our community. We currently have approximately five dedicated individuals providing 911 Non-Transporting, Basic Life Support assistance for Oconto Fire & Rescue.

Our current Scope of Practice allows our team to work at the (EMR) Emergency Medical Responder Level ...preparatory aspects, CPR, defibrillation, airway management, patient assessment, illness and injury management, childbirth and pediatric cases and EMS operations of emergency medical care. PFD EMS Members are Licensed with the Wisconsin Department of Health Services and must pass the grueling National Registry Exam. They are required to maintain their certifications and encouraged to continue their training and education in their spare time. What an amazing group of Caregivers!

All EMS members are equipped with fully stocked EMS bags, which provide more than just Basic First Aid support to our patients. They also carry (AEDs) Automated External Defibrillators. An AED could very well be the difference in saving a life in those first valuable minutes.

First Responders NEVER work alone – we are a TEAM of Police Officers, Firefighters, Dispatch Operators, Roadway/Towing Specialists, Medical Professionals and many more… We build strong foundations to provide the best level of care, keep team members safe and promote a positive work environment where everyone can perform to their highest ability.
