Alexandria Fire Department Changing Their Delivery Model

Engine 202
The Alexandria, Virginia Fire Department announced today that they are moving to a more cost effective service delivery system in the City.

This means that fire and EMS service delivery will be performed by personnel that have training in firefighting and Basic Life Support (BLS). Advanced Life Support (ALS) service delivery will be performed by firefighters that have the additional ALS training (Paramedic). This is the same response model used in Fairfax County and Arlington and follows nationally accepted best practices for fire-based EMS delivery.
