Videos Allow Virtual Visits with Firefighters

Virtual Open House
This year we can’t invite you to your neighborhood fire station for Open Houses or events, so we hosted a virtual open house instead.

Tour the Medic Unit
At least one paramedic is on duty 24/7 at each neighborhood fire station. Paramedics have additional training to provide advanced lifesaving care in the most serious medical emergencies.
High-performance CPR: Lifesaving Teamwork
Firefighters demonstrate how they work as a lifesaving team providing high-performance CPR for sudden cardiac arrest.
Learn CPR: Starting CPR before firefighters arrive can significantly increase cardiac arrest survival. The person most likely to need CPR will be a loved one. South County Fire teaches hands-only CPR in our free, one-hour ACT First Aid class, now available online. LEARN MORE AND REGISTER FOR ACT FIRST AID
What is a Community Paramedic?
Sometimes 911 callers need more than a trip to the hospital to help. The Community Paramedic Program provides non-emergency assistance to help frequent 911 callers access social services and resources. In addition to helping patients and their loved ones, the Community Paramedic Program has reduced 911 calls and emergency room visits.
- Free Help: Community paramedics can help you or your loved one stay safe at home.
- File of Life (PDF): Help us help you. Fill out this form and post it on your refrigerator where firefighters can find it if they respond for a 911 call.
- Falls Prevention: South County Fire offers help for concerned loved ones and older adults who have experienced a fall or may be at risk for falls.
