Ambulance Services

The Thornton Fire Department implemented an ambulance service for the citizens of Thornton in September 2004.  This service provides an advanced life support transport unit staffed with a paramedic and an emergency medical technician.  In conjunction with the City's advance life support fire engines, these units ensure continuous care from pickup through delivery to the appropriate emergency facility. To ensure the safety of citizen lives and property, the medic units are staffed with personnel that are dually trained for emergency medical services and firefighting duties. This places more individuals on fire scenes to ensure a safer, more effective firefighting force for the citizens of Thornton.

In 2023, Thornton Fire Department responded to over 11,500 emergency medical calls.
