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.

    Every ambulance in our fleet carries a Pedi-Mate, a reuseable pediatric restraint system that buckles onto our cots for the transport of young patients. The Pedi-Mate is meant for patients that weigh 10-40 lbs. The Pedi-Mate restrains the patient to the cot in a fashion very similar to car seats, with a five-point restaint system. The Pedi-Mate secures to the cot with three seat belts, one around the back of the upper part of the cot and two to the main side supports of the cot.
