Both Ogden City and Roy City contract with Weber County for the provision of paramedic services. Roy City provides primary coverage both within its city boundaries and throughout the southwest quadrant of Weber County. Ogden City provides primary coverage for the remainder of Weber County including the upper Valley area. Funding for paramedics comes ultimately from a combination of both property taxes and service charges retained from incident responses or special event staffing.
There are four squad-based units in all of Weber County, three of which are staffed by Ogden City (Roy City staffs the remaining unit). There is also one ambulance-based unit stationed in the upper Valley area of Weber County; this unit is also staffed by Ogden City. Each of the units, squad- or ambulance-based, is staffed on a 24-hour basis with two Firefighter/EMT-Ps.
Ogden City Fire Department provides primary ambulance coverage to not only Ogden City but also the northwest portions of unincorporated Weber County, Washington Terrace City, Farr West City, Marriott-Slaterville City, Plain City, and portions of West Haven City. Funding for ambulance services are covered solely by revenues from either incident transport fees or from special event staffing.
Several different types of medical units exist to provide emergency medical services to the community. Medical units are staffed on 24 hour shifts and consist of the following:
Medical Operations and Fire Operations share staffing on any given day. They are cross-trained to serve all basic incident response functions.
