Emergency Care Attendant (ECA) Program


Highland Village Police patrol personnel are cross-trained and certified by the Texas Department of Health as Emergency Care Attendants (ECA) since 2017.  The ECA Program is a cooperative partnership with the Highland Village Fire Department and local area Medical Director.

ECA certified personnel must pass an examination through the National Registry of Emergency Medical Responders, licensing through the Texas Department of State Health Services (TDSHS) and local procedural testing.

HVPD ECA certified personnel have the knowledge and skills to provide immediate lifesaving interventions while awaiting arrival of additional Emergency Medical Services (EMS) to arrive.
