Palm Bay Firefighter/Paramedics Now SWAT Team Members

YouTube/Brevard Times - PALM BAY, Florida -- Six Palm Bay Firefighter-paramedics are now part of Palm Bay Police Department's SWAT team and are able to respond to critical incidents in order to provide immediate medical support when necessary. The firefighters added to the team were selected after an intensive 12-plus hour tryout held in late July that tested not only their physical strength but their ability to make decisions and perform their job duties during high-stress and physical exhaustion. There will be at least two SWAT medics on duty at all times and they will respond with the SWAT team during all deployments.
