Fayetteville Fire Dept. adds medications to EMT toolkit a STAFF REPORT e Fayetteville Fire Depart- ment is equipping firefighters with four new medications ex- panding and enhancing lifesav- ing services designed to keep the community safe. Firefighters added these four new medicines to their treatment protocol on July 1: albuterol, oral glucose, diphenhydramine (Benadryl), and acetaminophen (Tylenol). e addition of these medica- tions will positively impact those suffering from breathing difficul- ties, diabetic emergencies, allergic reactions, high fevers and related illnesses. Nearly 70% of calls for service are medical in nature, so FFD continually focuses on opportunities to enhance patient care and increase survivability during medical emergencies. ese new medications will help to improve the quality of care and out- comes for the citizens and visitors of Fayetteville by facilitating early access to life saving therapy. All Fayetteville firefighters are certified Emergency Medical Techni- cians or EMTs credentialed through the State of North Carolina, and each firefighter received education and training leading up to the implemen- tation of the new medicines. is will be an efficient and low-cost service improvement due to the part- nership with Cape Fear Valley Health and close working relationship with Cumberland County EMS.
