The Nassau Bay Emergency Medical Service (EMS) was a division of the Fire Department in the early 1970s. In 2003, Nassau Bay EMS was transferred from a volunteer service to a fully-paid EMS service and was placed under the immediate direction of Emergency Management.
Our staff consists of EMS supervisors, paramedics, and EMTs. All paramedic staff personnel are required to maintain Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) and Basic Trauma Life Support (BTLS) provider certifications. Most staff members also maintain CPR-Instructor certification.
The City Nassau Bay EMS has one fully-stocked Texas Department of State Health Services-certified Mobile Intensive Care Unit (MICU) with Basic Life Support Capabilities (BLS) ambulance. The City of Nassau Bay provided EMS with state-of-the-art equipment and is outfitted with:
Progressive Standing Orders
- CPAP generator
- EZ-IO Kit
- F.A.S.T One
- Medtronic LIFEPAK 12-Lead ECG monitor
- Pulse oximetry
- Veriflo 02 manifold
One of our real strengths as an EMS organization has been our progressive standing orders. In 2014, Sandeep Duggal, M.D. became the current medical director for the Nassau Bay EMS.
