Capabilities

OAFED provides EMS care at the EMT-Paramedic level of care. The primary response ambulance is staffed by a crew that responds immediately from the station, or wherever the crew may be at any given time. Using staffing from the on-duty fire crews and interns, the reserve ambulance responds when there are multiple incidents within the fire district at the same time. In addition to the primary response area within the fire district, EMS services are provided to neighboring communities within Dane County, and Green and Rock Counties to the south.

Single Paramedic resources provide the exact same care that dual Paramedic resources provide. The advantage of a single Paramedic system is that it affords opportunities for EMT-Basic and Advanced-EMTs to operate at a more comprehensive level. Our focus at the OAFED is to train all of our emergency medical technicians to think clinically and critically at the highest level to provide excellent pre-hospital care. Our Paramedics rely heavily on their partners to assist with whatever injury or illness a patient may present with.

The goal of the OAFED is to ensure that EMTs of all licensure levels have a place to learn and grow as EMS professionals and as individuals.
