CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Cheyenne Fire Rescue celebrates National Emergency Medical Services Week from May 21 to May 27.

Emergency Medical Services are is an essential service in Cheyenne. This year’s theme is “Where Emergency Care Begins.” Providers in the city are dedicated to compassionate, professional care for your friends and family. An average response time to arrive and begin lifesaving EMS care is five minutes and 30 seconds.

Every day Cheyenne has Firefighter/EMT-Basic and Firefighter/EMT-Paramedic providers who are ready to answer the call of service for you. In 2022, CFR responded to 6,681 emergency medical service calls, and that number continues to increase as the population grows. CFR personnel completed over 4,000 hours of EMS training in 2022 to maintain their certification. Training subjects included airway management, medication administration, IV and injection procedures, cardiac emergencies, stroke emergencies, traumatic injuries and pediatric emergencies.


With this in mind, CFR will conduct a community-driven strategic planning session on May 30 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. This meeting will be led by professionals from the Center for Public Safety Excellence Technical Advisor Program and the chief officers of CFR. It will be held in the Community Room of the Public Safety Center, located at 415 W. 18th St. Lunch and snacks will be provided.
