At the Bedford Park Fire Department, we take great pride in our commitment to providing exceptional pre-hospital care to our community through our Emergency Medical Services.

We have come a long way since the 1970s when we started offering basic life support services. As the needs of our community evolved, so did our EMS capabilities. By the 1980s, we had expanded our service to include highly trained paramedics who provide advanced life support services.

Currently, we staff 2 Advanced Life Support (ALS) ambulances and each of our three fire companies are staffed with paramedics and the needed ALS equipment and medications to handle any medical emergency. Our personnel are equipped with state-of-the-art technology and equipment that enables them to offer the best advanced medical care in the field available.

Our ALS services are provided under the guidance of the Christ Hospital EMS System. As an organization, we constantly strive to ensure that we meet the ever-changing needs of our
