Troy Fire Protection District Emergency Ambulance Service started with its first call on May 13, 1980. The first class of EMT's had finished their initial training April of that year. Our first ambulance was purchased with the help of revenue sharing monies from Troy Township and the Village of Shorewood, and shortly after, another much needed ambulance was purchased. Through fundraisers and generous donations the Troy Fire Protection District was able to purchase much needed equipment and training materials.
On October 1, 1989 the first full time contract ambulance personnel were hired, consisting of two EMT-B’s on duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The first full time EMS personnel hired were Andrew Doyle, Steve Robbins, Chris Kmetz, Mike Detello, Bob Muncie, and Jeff Fredendow. In the fall of 1991 they became EMT-I’s and in 1993 they became paramedics. For over 30 years the Troy Fire Protection District has provided the community with full time Advanced Life Support ambulance services.
