Department News and Events
In April 2013, the Town of Delafield Fire Department was awarded with $212,623.00 in grant money from the Federal Emergency Management Agency Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) program. This grant has funded new communications radios to replace the entire fleet of radios that had been in use since 2001. The new radios – 44 in total – are capable of operation on the current Waukesha County 800MHz analog trunked radio system, as well as on other neighboring 800MHz and VHF analog and digital P25 radio systems. One such system, the Wisconsin Interoperable System for Communications (WISCOM), facilitates statewide interoperable communications between emergency responders of all disciplines where communications systems are otherwise disparate. With a planned upgrade of the Waukesha County radio system to digital standards in the near future, the Town of Delafield secured this grant funding to avoid the need to fund a costly fleet-wide upgrade in the coming years, as the previously operated radio equipment is not compatible with the existing analog system. Here’s what the local news had to say about this exciting opportunity:
Delafield town gains $200,000 grant (http://www.livinglakecountry.com/kettlemoraineindex/delafield-town-gains-200000-grant-b9947565z1-214591441.html).
In March 2012, the Town of Delafield Fire Department was awarded with $93,290.00 in grant money from the Federal Emergency Management Agency Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) program. This grant allowed the Department to purchase two new cardiac monitor/defibrillators, power-assisted stretchers for our ambulances, and stair chairs that assist in the movement of patients on stairways. Our new cardiac monitors provide advanced features that enable our personnel to more thoroughly analyze and treat patients. Our EMS crews can use these monitors to transmit vital patient information to the hospital while in transit, providing valuable information to emergency room staff so they can better prepare for our patients’ arrival. Finally, our new power-assisted stretchers and stair chairs provide an increased level of safety for both our patients and our EMS crews when moving and transporting patients.
TDFD Congratulates Six New EMT-I99 ALS Providers – Six of our Department members – community members with their own full-time careers and families – recently completed the coursework and testing to become certified EMT-Intermediate (I99) level providers. Having completed this 400 hour training and certification program, the Town now has six additional ALS-level EMS providers working to bring advanced pre-hospital emergency care to the residents of the Town of Delafield . Continuing education and advanced level training are essential to providing an advanced level of medical care. We are proud of these individuals for their accomplishments, and we thank them for the time and effort they have devoted to completing this advanced training.
