All Trophy Club Firefighters are dual certified. Each one holds a State certification in Firefighting as well an Emergency Medical Technician Certification, with all full-time personnel being certified to the level of Paramedic.
This allows us to have more trained individuals on the scene to assist with patient care, as well as the having the supervisor, who rides on the fire truck, to handle command and control needs as they may arise, i.e. to set up a landing zone for a helicopter should an air ambulance become necessary, or to request more resources, such as an additional ambulance, should we have multiple patients, or for vehicle stabilization and scene safety in the event of an auto accident, etc., etc. These are only a few of the potential reasons that more personnel may be needed on an emergency scene.
