Emergency Medical Services Solon Fire Rescue has a reputation as a premier provider
of emergency medical services and is well established in the EMS
community. Starting in 1924 with a modest staff of volunteer
firefighters, our current staff of 60 personnel provides advanced life
support services in the field including but not limited to 12-lead
cardiac monitoring, continuous positive airway pressure or CPAP
administration, pulse oximetry monitoring, and drug administration.
Solon’s first paramedics utilized 4 cardiac drugs and a single page of
standing medical orders. Today, the expanded drug administration list
includes 25 different lifesaving medications, and medical standing
orders are contained in a comprehensive 77 page document.
