Why do you send a fire engine when I called for an ambulance?

Additional First Reponders and/or EMT's are needed at medical aids to have response redundancy and for trained personnel to assist in moving patients and equipment through homes and buildings in the most expeditious manner possible. It is also necessary to have more than two people perform treatments such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation and other life saving measures. The Fire Department staff is responsible for scene management and Incident Command  of all their responses.
