An Emergency Snow Parking Ban is in effect for West Des Moines from 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, January 22, to 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 23, 2020. 

The Emergency Parking Ban applies to all streets in West Des Moines. During an Emergency Parking Ban, vehicles are subject to a $50 fine and/or towing.

    WDM EMS/IA EMS Alliance have purchased the eXpandable Patient Surface (XPS) kits that retrofit on the Stryker Power-PRO cots that we are currently using. These kits include side rails, along with a differently-shaped mattress. The side rails are unique in the fact that they lock into seven different positions, allowing wider patients to comfortably and safely fit on the cots. These rails lack the gaps that the old rails had. The mattress design also helps reduce the "transfer gap" between the cot and the bed when the patient is moved over.
