Medical First Responders…Did you know?
“I called 911 for an ambulance. Why are the police showing up at my house?” The answer to that simple question is that the officers in Walker are licensed Medical First Responders and are all required to be trained and obtain their MFR License for their employment. Police officers and/or firefighters in Walker are going to be the first units to respond to a medical emergency within - and possibly outside - the city limits of Walker. They are equipped to start medical intervention at crash scenes involving trauma, as well as medical emergencies that arise from illnesses and sudden onset, such as cardiac arrest. They have even had the privilege of delivering several babies on scene before the ambulance arrived. Walker police cruisers are stocked with medical equipment and for that reason are very thankful to be driving a large Tahoe!
