Why do fire trucks arrive before or with ambulance on medical calls?
Currently, under various medical and traumatic injuries first responses we have fire personnel respond with Sartori Paramedics. We do not respond to all medical calls, but we do respond when called for breathing problems, heart trouble calls, stroke, falls and other traumatic injuries. The reason we respond with the paramedics is that often on a major medical response or traumatic injury response the paramedics need additional help to perform specific tasks in the treatment of a patient. In addition, depending on the medical call fire personnel may drive the ambulance so that both paramedics may assist the patient.
