KCFD’s Second Medical Unit Academy Begins

KERN COUNTY, Calif., The Kern County Fire Department is happy to announce another Medical Unit Academy is underway! Like the previous academy in April 2024, the first of its kind, it will include civilian EMTs and civilian Paramedics. At the end of the three-week academy, they will begin transitioning into field operations. It is exciting to think of how these new members of the Kern County Fire Department will help us provide emergency care to the unincorporated areas of Kern County. As we have already seen with other Medical Units in service, they will reduce response times, provide Advanced Life Support care, and improve availability of Fire Units. All made possible through funding by Measure K.
