RLFR EMS DIVISION
If you or a loved one ever faces a medical emergency, rest assured, you’re in good hands. The EMS Division team includes skilled paramedics as well as emergency medical technicians (EMTs) who are ready at a moment’s notice. They provide a level of care that’s not often found in communities the size of Red Lodge and the surrounding area that comprises our service area (the Red Lodge - Roberts Ambulance District).
The EMS Division's paramedics and EMTs are qualified to deliver critical-level care, and our ambulances are equipped with the all the latest equipment and medicines needed to respond to a wide variety of situations, including trauma, spinal injuries, and cardiac emergencies.
Team members are committed to ongoing training and are ready to apply the best medical techniques available in the industry. In addition to their own training, they also teach CPR, First Aid, and EMT classes. You’ve also probably seen them standing by at a local sporting events – that’s another service our dedicated EMS Division team provides.
