EMS Program


Arlington TX.

A short presentation of how the Arlington EMS service operates. It is presented by City Manager Trey Yelverton...( a wonderful person and leader ) who I volunteer for one day per week at City Hall. He visits every city department once per year to present how each operates to the citizens.

Arlington (along with Fort Worth, TX ), does not operate Fire Dept. Ambulances. This service is contracted out which saves on city manpower and equipment, to be used for 'fire suppression'.

Plano, TX Fire Rescue Squads:

This is nearly identical to the program that Arlington started in 2011, which is is 'working-out' very well. Arlington has added 6 more units last year.
