Important Information about Emergency Medical Services
Many Garland residents have questions about emergency medical care following the closing of Baylor Scott & White Medical Center Garland on Feb. 28.
The City of Garland Fire Department and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) continue to monitor the effects of this closure and make operational adjustments as necessary to provide the best service for our residents.
The City of Garland Fire Department staffs 11 full-time ambulances with highly trained paramedics.
In the event that an in-district ambulance is not available, Garland’s fire engines and trucks have trained EMS personnel and basic life support equipment on them. They will respond to the scene and can treat patients before an out-of-district ambulance arrives on scene to transport.
The City of Garland Fire Department has access to emergency physicians for clinical consultation 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
In order to respond to your emergency as quickly as possible, patients will be transported to the closest hospital that is most appropriate to handle the patient’s current medical condition. This will allow our limited resources to return to the city in the quickest manner so that they can be available for life-threatening emergencies.
