Emergency Medical Services
The Germantown Fire Department is the Primary Ambulance Service for the Village of Germantown. Our Primary service are is the 34.5 square miles of the Village, in addition we also provide service to 8 miles of I41. In 2015 Germantown Ambulances responded to over 1300 patients, which is about 80% of the Fire Department's request for services.
The Germantown Fire Department operates at an Intermediate Technician level. At this level of operation EMTs may administer IV therapy, and a limited scope of medications in addition to basic medical evaluations.
Even Though we are a fire department, fire supression comprises only about 15% of our total call volume. On average the GFD responds to around 400 calls for fire service a year. These call can range from a structure fire to a duck trapped in a sewer. The fire department is usually called when all other resources can not handle the situation.
