Yes, the Lubbock fire department is now responding to all "priority one" medical emergencies. This began as of 08:00 February 1st. The Lubbock Fire Department has been training many of it's people to EMT, EMT-I, and a few paramedics. Our goal is to provide basic life support to seriously or potentially seriously ill patients until EMS arrives.just FYI, priority one means; motor vehicle crashes with injuries, shootings, stabbings, respiratory distress, cardiac emergencies, and any other known or suspected life threatening medical emergency.
