The Allen Park Fire Department provides an emergency based Advanced Life Support rescue service. This system is designed to provide fast competent service for medical emergencies. Fire Department rescue services are not intended for general patient transportation for non-emergency medical needs.
The Allen Park Fire Department is staffed with highly trained paramedics. The paramedic level allows the firefighters to perform many needed treatments such as fluid replacement, medication administration as well as 12 lead ECG capabilities that can save lives. We can provide cardiac drugs on scene and perform most of the resuscitation efforts usually reserved for the Emergency Room. We also provide needed medication to people having Diabetic emergencies, allergic reactions and many other emergency conditions requiring such treatment. We work in constant communication with our medical control to provide the highest level of pre-hospital emergency care for people suffering from a medical emergency.
The Allen Park Fire Department is equipped with the best extrication equipment available to remove accident victims from their vehicle following a serious accident. This truck pictured above carries the jaws of life, and many other extrication tools including, Vetter bags for lifting, a foam induction system with a separate foam tank and various hand and cordless power tools. The City of Allen Park has three major highways that pass through it. We have M39 (Southfield Freeway), Interstate 94 a major east west highway and Interstate 75 a major north south interstate highway within our jurisdiction. We have utilized this valuable equipment and this fire truck many times to assist people who have had accidents on these high-speed thoroughfares.
