St. Johns Fire District New Medical Squad
St John’s Fire District has launched a quick response medical squad that will respond to Kiawah, Seabrook, Wadmalaw and Johns islands. The program was initiated in an effort to improve response times, decrease the volume of emergency medical service (EMS) calls for fire suppression personnel, and reduce wear and tear on a full-size fire engine. St. John’s Fire District recently purchased the two quick response SUV’s which allow for increased maneuverability and faster response times particularly in the District’s barrier islands, when visitors increase during the summer months.
