Medical First Responder
The City of Greer Fire Department's medical personnel respond to any report of a medical emergency within the department's 25 square mile service area.
Personnel are licensed by the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control as Medical First Responders at the intermediate level. Services rendered by the department’s personnel include basic medical treatment, cardiac treatment with automatic external defibrillation, advanced airway intubation, and IV administration.
Many local jurisdictions do not have the capabilities of performing such services as cardiac treatment and IV administration. The City of Greer Fire Department is one of only a handful of departments that use these advanced procedures.
