First Responders

A network of first responders, many of them volunteer departments from across Mecklenburg County, partner with Medic to provide reliable EMS coverage throughout the community.  When you call 9-1-1 for any medical emergency, Medic simultaneously dispatches the closest first responder agency in addition to a Paramedic team.

In the event of an automobile accident or similar high mechanism incident, having the first responders on hand makes patient access and/or extrication safely possible. In the event of a personal medical emergency, area first responders arrive with an EMT onboard to begin the patient evaluation process, communicating any relevant information to Medic’s Paramedic team while enroute. This partnership between Medic and area first responders ensures that the appropriate level of care is administered to every patient, every call, in the shortest amount of time possible.
