Why Does A Fire Truck Arrive At The Scene When We Called For An Ambulance? 2017-02-05T09:56:57+00:00

Many times a fire truck may be closer to the scene and the attention to the sick and injured may be started quicker. Also, our fire trucks have EMT’s and Paramedics aboard and they are very capable of beginning health care. The engines also carry defibrillators in case of a heart attack; this alone could save a patient’s life. The engine crews also may be used to drive the ambulance to the hospital if the patient needs more than one care giver, they also may assist in lifting and moving patients.
