Pantex honored its fire department personnel on Friday in advance of National Emergency Medical Services Professionals Week. All firefighters at Pantex are trained as emergency medical technicians and many are paramedics, qualified to perform advanced life support operations in the new ambulances. Pantex has fire and ambulance crews on standby 24 hours a day to respond to plant emergencies and to assist surrounding municipalities through mutual aid agreements.
