A majority of New Bern Fire-Rescue personnel are either medical
responders or Emergency Medical Technicians. This enables us to
assist the local Emergency Medical System (EMS) with lifting assistance,
cardiac arrest, and motor vehicle incidents. EMS Continuing Education
classes are offered monthly through our Training Division, which
enables personnel the ability to maintain their required certification
hours. This service is above and beyond normal requirements, and
enables us to better serve the citizens of New Bern.
