Default Fire and EMS?

There's something I have been wondering about. How many of you who work for a fire department are both firefighters and paramedics? Do you provide EMS on a daily basis?

In my department we provide both services.

We provide both here in Edmonton. We are only first responders or EMR level with the dept. Then EMS arrives less than 5 mins later.

My department does only volunteer technical rescues anything from mva to ems assists to RIT we do anything but fight the fires, but we do have members who are qualified to do so we just dont have the equipment to fight the fires.

One of the departments i run with has 3 ambulance rigs along with all our fire trucks. I guess you can say there are members on the fire side and squad side or both. But we operate together and run out of the same building.

Sorry to hear about the layoffs. Here the city officials were threatening pay laying off FF/paramedics unless we gave in to paycuts, increasing our contributions to benefits, and reducing benefits. No one got laid off but we took a hit on pay, benefits, and staffing. Now they put 2 trucks out of service every day instead of hiring any overtime to staff them.

I work for 2 ambulance services that provide only EMS. Never been the fire type but am eternally grateful for those that are. One service I work for is a private hospital owned service, the other is county operated also completely separate from fire. Those seem to be very rare but it's honestly my #1 choice as far as how to setup an EMS system.

My company provides both basic fire suppression and medical services, though I only fall into the fire/rescue roll myself.

Those were the old days in my department. But now everyone has to be both a medic and a firefighter and you can be either on the ladder, engine, or rescue (ambulance truck). We call our fire dept ambulances = rescues. The old timers hate it when they have to work on the rescue and do medical calls.
