The Congressional Fire Services Institute (CFSI) and MedicAlert Foundation recognized the innovation and leadership of three fire departments with the Excellence in Fire Service-Based EMS Award at the 25th Annual National Fire and Emergency Services Dinner tonight at the Washington Hilton. The honorees were the Snohomish County Fire Protection District #1 (WA), Miami-Dade Fire Rescue (FL), and Montgomery County, Maryland Fire and Rescue Service (MD).

In its third year, the Excellence in Fire Service-Based EMS Awards program showcases fire departments for best practices and innovative solutions in the delivery of emergency medical services. CFSI and MedicAlert Foundation established the awards program to promote innovative emergency medical services programs as models for other fire departments around the country to consider adopting to enhance the services they provide in their communities.

The three fire departments – 2 career and 1 combination – presented with the third annual Excellence in Fire Service-Based EMS Awards:

Snohomish County Fire Protection District #1 (Career): Introduction of an EMS checklist to improve the quality of patient care through the consistent and uniform application of best practices, regardless of extraneous variables found on the scene of each medical emergency.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue (Career): An aggressive infection control program to provide continuity of medical care, rapid treatment and supportive education and psychological support for emergency providers exposed to communicable diseases.

Montgomery County, Maryland Fire and Rescue Service (Combination): Innovations in cardiac care through enhanced training, and advanced EKG monitoring/coo
