The department operates three Advanced Life Support (ALS) transporting rescues; Rescue's 1, 2 and 4. Rescue 1 is located at Station 1, 913 Broadway, Rescue 2 is located at Station 2, 329 Bullocks Point Avenue and Rescue 4 is located at Station 4, 66 Wampanoag Trail. Each Rescue Company is staffed with two EMT-Cardiac or Paramedic Technicians. There are three Rescue Lieutenants, one assigned to oversee the operations of each rescue.
As part of the department's pro-active approach to medical emergencies, Standard operating Guidelines requires the closest Engine or Ladder Company to respond with the Rescue on all medical related incidents. Each Engine and Ladder Company is a certified ALS unit, equipped with an Automatic External Defibrillator and Advanced Life Support cardiac medications.
