The Sharps Chapel Volunteer Fire Department currently has medically trained personnel on staff to assist Union County EMS with a First Responder Program. We have 1 Paramedic, 1 Advanced Emergency Medical Technician, 4 Emergency Medical Responders, and 1 Registered Nurse on our roster. We have several more members who are currently in medical training classes at this time. The First Responder Program is an important program, especially for a rural area such as ours. In the event Union County EMS does not have a unit close by at the time of a medical call in our area, our department is called out for assistance on the call until they arrive on the scene. Our medically trained personnel are also very important to have on vehicle accidents and other emergency calls that we respond to.
