Why does a fire truck come when I call for an ambulance?
All of the Department’s certified firefighters are either EMT (Emergency Medical Tecnician) or Paramedic certified, and all apparatus are licensed ALS (Advanced Life Support) equipped units. In the event all Rescue units are busy on other emergencies, a fire engine or fire truck is dispatched. Additionally, a Rescue and an engine may respond together to provide the appropriate number of personnel on scene based on the type of emergency call.
