Wall VFD medical responders are certified to perform in accordance with the protocols at the EMR or EMT level as per their certification. Those certified as Paramedics are restricted to the EMT level of care until a San Angelo Fire Department (SAFD) ambulance arrives on the scene. At that time, they may assist the SAFD Paramedics as requested.
