Lake Park Florida re: Fire Rescue services

Lake park enters into a interlocal agreement with town of Palm Beach Shores to provide EMS rescue services.

Lake Park has agreed to provide EMS rescue service to the community of Palm Beach Shores, under a contract approved by both cities. Lake Park will begin EMS service once the County Commission grants the necessary licensing. The current provider American Medical Response will continue to provide secondary services in accordance with their county wide licence.

Lake Park Fire Rescue will become the primary provider of services and will transport those individuals in need of advanced life support. Decreased response times will be reduced even further once the traffic preemption devices are installed along US Hwy. One.

Traffic preemption devices allow responding emergency vehicles to automatically change the traffic lights to green as they approach.
