Westmont is very proud of the level of the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) that it provides. It operates three state-of-the-art Advanced Life Support (ALS) ambulances. Both of our front line engines are also equipped with complete Advanced Life Support medical equipment. These engines respond with a minimum of one Paramedic. There are more than 55 licensed paramedics on the Department roster. Approximately sixty percent of all EMS calls require some form of Advanced Life Support services.
The Department responds to almost 2,600 emergency medical calls a year. Most of the patients are transported to either Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove or Hinsdale Hospital. Transports are made to other area hospitals when appropriate for the level of patient care.
The EMS Division provides other services, including blood pressure screening, public education, CPR, AED and First Aid training classes, senior citizen programs, and programs for our school age children.
Westmont Fire Department’s EMS Division is operated under the guidance of the Good Samaritan Emergency Medical Services System and is licensed by the Illinois Department of Public Health.
