Emergency Medical Services Division
Danville Fire Department personnel are trained to the Emergency Medical Technician-Basic (EMT-B) level. Recertification and refresher classes are conducted annually by the department's EMS Training Division utilizing state-certified instructors.
The Department is licensed by the Virginia Office of Emergency Medical Services as a Basic Life Support (BLS) Agency, and is inspected periodically by the Western Virginia EMS Council (WVEMS).
The Department responds to life-threatening calls for assistance within the City of Danville, as a non-transporting agency. It is our goal to render aid until the arrival of one of the City's ambulance agencies.
