Facing shortage of paramedics, Great Falls Fire Rescue actively recruiting, training their own

February 26, 2018View for printing

When the city started running advanced life support calls out of Station 2 in 2000, Great Falls Fire Rescue had five paramedics.

In 2001, 2002 and 2004, the department was able to train 22 firefighters as paramedics thanks to funding from the Carrico Foundation. The first class of eight firefighters in 2001 completed the paramedic program at what was then known as MSU College of Technology and the initiative was the first of its kind statewide, according a history of GFFR.
