Why do you send a fire truck with an ambulance to a medical call?
Our main object is to get emergency personnel to the scene as quickly as possible. All of our members are cross trained as Firefighters/EMT-B or Paramedics. Crews arriving on a fire engine provide emergency medical care while they wait for the nearest ambulance to arrive. The only thing our fire engines cannot do is provide patient transportation to the hospital.
