The Red Card Agility Test represents a meticulously crafted benchmark in physical fitness assessment, tailored specifically for firefighters and medics. This test is given once a year.


At the heart of this comprehensive evaluation lies the Walk Test, an integral component of the Red Card Agility Test. This pivotal examination presents candidates with a formidable challenge: carrying a 45lb pack through rugged terrains, conquering a demanding 3-mile course, all while striving to complete it within a mere 45 minutes. This is no ordinary stroll; it is a rigorous assessment of a medic's physical fortitude and endurance, meticulously designed to ensure their readiness for the relentless demands of wildland medical emergency response.


At Delta County Ambulance District (DCAD), we recognize that airway and MAI (Medical Airway Intervention) management stands as more than just a crucial component; it is the very lifeline of our education and training program.

In our commitment to excellence, we offer ongoing training that immerses our medics in a diverse range of airway and intubation equipment, ensuring they remain proficient with the latest tools and knowledge available. Our training programs also provide a comprehensive understanding of the medications employed to facilitate intubations, encompassing sedatives, analgesics, and neuromuscular blocking agents, including their precise indications and dosages.

It empowers our medics with the knowledge and skills necessary to swiftly recognize and effectively manage patients facing airway emergencies, ultimately resulting in lives saved and the highest level of care provided.
