Emergency Medical Services (EMS)

Emergency medical service continues to provide Aurora Fire Rescue the greatest opportunity to serve our community. Each year almost 70% of the total Aurora Fire Rescue responses include medical emergencies.

The Aurora Fire Rescue authorized version of the Denver Metro Prehospital Protocols are utilized by Aurora Fire Rescue firefighter emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and firefighter paramedics as well as Falck Rocky Mountain EMTs and paramedics.

Emergency Medical Training

Systemwide Emergency Medical Training

The paramedics and EMTs of Aurora Fire Rescue continue to participate in weekly Emergency Medical Training sessions that bring all of the individual agencies within the Aurora emergency medical response system together for training.This training includes: Children's Hospital Colorado, University of Colorado Hospital and The Medical Center of Aurora, Aurora Fire Rescue and Falck Rocky Mountain ambulance company. The ultimate goal of this program is better medical care from the onset of an injury or illness until the patient is released from the hospital.

Pediatric Stroke Alert Program

According to the National Stroke Association, it takes from 48 to 72 hours on average for a pediatric patient to get to the hospital after recognizing the first symptoms of a stroke. Recognizing the catastrophic outcomes of such late recognition and subsequent interventions, Aurora Fire Rescue,in cooperation with our healthcare partners, expanded the Stroke Alert Program to include pediatric patients and introduced one of the first, if not the only, pre-hospital Pediatric Stroke Alert Program in the country. This system builds on the success of our adult Stroke Alert Program and allows pediatric stroke alert patients to be transported directly to Children's Hospital Colorado where pediatric neurologists meet the patient in the emergency department.
