This week is #NationalEMSWeek, a week where we recognize and appreciate the valuable contributions to our communities Emergency Medical Services professionals provide. The Snyder Fire Department has over 35 Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) and many more who work in advanced levels of EMS care. Being a Firefighter with Snyder is more than just riding in Fire Engines, it includes regular training and practicing of Emergency Medical Services and Caring for Our Communities. While we provide resources for our members to take NYS EMT classes, we also provide in-house training and even train with our Advanced EMS and Transport provider, Twin City Ambulance. Many of our Members maintain EMT certifications or higher, and are often the first on-scene in the event of an emergency.
