The Kingston Fire Department currently provides Emergency Medical Technicians at three levels: Basic, Intermediate, and Paramedic. Having all three levels of trained personnel allows us to offer the highest possible level of medical care to the citizens of Kingston. In addition, Exeter Hospital is available for Advanced Life Support intercepts when necessary. Med flights are dispatched as needed for serious emergencies.
Ambulance crews are licensed by the State of New Hampshire and the National Registry of EMT’s. They are required to pass a rigorous test after taking courses appropriate to their level of training. In addition, all EMT’s participate in continuous training sessions to assure the highest quality of care to our residents. The EMS Coordinator monitors compliance with all department infection control procedures and policies relating to emergency care and transportation. These efforts continue to pay dividends as evidenced by the increasing level and quality of care being provided in the field.
There are some changes coming soon to the three levels of certification, we will update soon!
