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.
