Why do fire engines respond with ambulances?
Our fire engines and ladder trucks respond with 3 personnel and are sometimes stationed closer to your address than the closest ambulance. All of our engines have EMTs or Paramedics who can arrive before an ambulance to begin patient care.

Our engines are equipped with basic medical gear and an automatic external defibrillator (AED), which may assist in certain types of cardiac arrest. Each of our Paramedic Ambulances have 1 Paramedic and 1 EMT on board. By adding additional personnel on the scene, we can do a more efficient, safer job of caring for our patients.
