    yea, hard to explain why a million dollar truck is responding to abd pains.. haha

    As I recall, when Phoenix first started to field paramedics, they were looking for a good way to distribute the limited number available. They chose to put them on the trucks as opposed to the engines, so if you called for EMS, you got a ladder.

    Nowadays they're on the engines, and they now have some paramedic-staffed ambulances as well (the "rescues" were only staffed with basics - the medic came off the engine or truck).

    Our ladders go for "lift assists" when you need the 5 extra guys since the patient is HUGE. Also we carry the "man sack", (thats what its actually called) which is a very large reinforced reeves type stretcher.

    The busy fire companies get hammered. Being in the areas that get a lot of work also brings with it A LOT of EMS.
    yea we go for invalid assits or just for man power on occasion.. and also if the engine is out and we get a pretty high priority call in our first in, we will pick it up.. They wont dispatch us, cause we aren't SUPPOSED to run ems.. but not going to let the next due engine come from 10 miles away when its only 1 mile away from the station! haha

    Our call load has been going up steadily for a number of years, last fiscal year we ran around 550. That is a mix between ALS First Response (Non-transport) and Fire. About 35% of our call load is medical, the rest is Fire/Auto accident related.

    We run out of one not so centralized station, with 2 Engine's, a Tanker, a Ladder Co. Two Rescues, a Heavy and a Light. The light Rescue being used for EMS runs. We also run a Brush truck and a Rescue Boat, and that is about it.

    I think we run about 1500 calls a year between three stations. The majority are EMS first response (we don't do transport) auto accidents and fire alarms.

    We avg +40,000 calls a year. 70% are EMS. All EMS runs are accompanied with either an engine or truck, no matter the call. Goes up from there on severity of the call.
