Emergency Medical Services Training
Captain Gerry Koeneman oversees Emergency Medical Services (EMS) training including:
- EMS training development
- equipment purchasing
- protocol review
- quality assurance
- coordination between local, regional, and state EMS entities
We meet with the Fire Department's medical director on a regular basis to review quality assurance, quality improvement and to discuss changes in protocols and training needs. Captain Koeneman is also responsible for the direction of the department’s AED program and the CPR training center.
A yearly EMS training calendar, based on Missouri BEMS and National Registry Requirements is developed to assist fire department EMTs with state re-licensure.
