Joplin's Spotlight

As the City and the Department have grown so have the responsibilities. The Department has embraced the inclusion of ALS first response and actively seeks paramedics. Hazardous Material response took on new meaning post 9/11 and the Department is host to a state sanctioned homeland security response team. The Department is also involved with technical/heavy rescue and is capable of building collapse rescue. The Department has met the challenges of the past and looks forward to a bright future.
