Why is a fire engine or other fire vehicles sent when I called for an ambulance?
A fire engine or a fire squad is often sent for additional staffing assistance when an ambulance is dispatched for very serious medical emergencies such as heart attack, unconscious person, or asthma attack. In addition, if the ambulance for that assigned response district is already out on an emergency call and a second call is received for the same district, a fire engine or fire squad is sent as a first responder ahead of an ambulance from another response district
