The Pawtucket Fire Department provides emergency medical services with its four frontline advance life support rescues. Fire fighters are trained to provide EMT-Cardiac and Paramedic levels of care. The fire fighters on the engines and ladder trucks also have the same level of EMT training as their coworkers on the rescues. Those trucks will also respond with the rescue if the call is severe or more help is needed on scene. Likewise, the personnel assigned to the rescue are trained fire fighters and can act as such when needed.

The Emergency Medical Division is headed by a rescue chief and rescue director. They oversee the department’s EMS activities.
