BLS Medical Care

The PVFD does not just respond to fires, nearly 60% of our call volume is medical
related. The PVFD is licensed by the Texas Department of Health and provides a non-
transport BLS first response medical service to our community. When 911 is called such
as for a medical emergency, Paris 911 telecommunicators will page the PVFD along
with a ALS MICU Ambulance from Paris EMS. This happens simultaneously and allows
for a more structured response.
