Our team of highly trained paramedics and emergency medical technicians (EMTs) respond to emergency calls 24/7, providing advanced life support (ALS) care, including basic life support (BLS) and intermediate life support (ILS) services. We also provide non-emergency medical transportation, paramedic intercept services, and participate in community outreach and education programs to promote health and wellness in our Colorado area.


Additionally, in emergency situations, the availability of dependable and efficient medical services is critical, since prompt intervention can mean the difference between life and death. In a crisis, every minute matters, and delays can be disastrous. As a result, Lake George Fire Protection District offer emergency medical services, prepared with resources, skilled staff, and infrastructure we need to respond to emergencies promptly and efficiently.

The Role of LGFPD in Medical Coverage

Providing medical assistance in the Rocky Mountains poses unique challenges due to the vast and remote terrain, harsh weather conditions, and limited accessibility. However, this environment also presents advantages, such as access to a diverse range of ecosystems and opportunities for wilderness medicine training. 

Our medical team responds to emergencies in rugged terrain, navigate challenging weather conditions like snowstorms and avalanches, and operate in isolated areas with limited communication and medical resources. On the other hand, the Rocky Mountains offer a chance to develop specialized skills in wilderness medicine, such as avalanche rescue, mountain search and rescue, and high-altitude medicine, which can be applied to other environments worldwide
