Emergency Medical Services Scope

 PEFD Volunteers are trained and certified with our Local EMS Agency. We adhere to the policies and treatment guidelines of our Medical Director and Base Hospital, Eastern Plumas Health Care. Plumas County and all other four counties in our LEMSA have "optional scope" items for EMS personnel with additional trainings and testing. This enables our EMS personnel to better serve our rural/frontier communities. At PEFD we are trained and approved for these optional scopes to make our community safer. All of our personnel being able to administer an EpiPen and IN Narcan is incredibly valuable.
