The mission of the Davis County Deputy/Paramedic Service is to provide quality medical response, evaluation, treatment and transport for Davis County citizens and its visitors 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  This is accomplished by means of Utah certified paramedics treating all who call without regard to sex, race, religion, national origin, or their ability to pay.  The deputy/paramedic strives to serve others with care, compassion, dignity and respect.  As stewards of Davis County taxpayers’ money, it is our goal to perform efficiently.

The deputy/paramedic program is unique with the blending of law enforcement and para-medicine.  It was established in 1978 and was one of the first paramedic services to be fully licensed and certified by the State of Utah.  When not functioning as paramedics, deputies patrol the county and contract cities by enforcing laws and making arrests.

When a call for medical assistance is initiated, the Davis County dispatch identifies and sends the two closest units to the location utilizing GPS technology.  This guarantees a fast and efficient advanced life support (ALS) response.  Frequently deputy/paramedics arrive on scene and begin life saving treatment several minutes prior to the arrival of other responding medical units.

Each deputy/paramedic carries the necessary equipment in his/her vehicle to handle both law enforcement and medical calls.  When acting as a paramedic, they assume medical control of a scene and convey all aspects of care from initial patient assessment and treatment to continued care during transport to the hospital.  This task is accomplished in collaboration with local fire departments that act as basic life support and offer ambulance transport.

The Sheriff’s Office Paramedic Program provides primary ALS response to over half of the population in Davis County and Hill Air Force Base.  The program has the responsibility of secondary paramedic response to the other half of the county and other local agencies via mutual aid agreements.

We currently accomplish this task utilizing 25 fully stocked medic units that are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  This facilitates a tiered response in the event of a large scale event or disaster.
