Recently retired after 25 + years of Paramedic service for the people of British Columbia. We are a Provincial service operating 140 plus stations and a fleet of over 500 Ambulances and 60 Support Vehicles (not many Dodges in the mix, think 6 Durangos and 15 Caravans. Most of the Ambulances were on Ford Chassis but the service has made a switch to Chev as the Duramax is a lot quieter and way more reliable than the 6.0 litre Ford. 7.3 litre Fords were absolutely bullet proof but the 6.0 litres are junk. The main reason we do not run Dodge/Chrysler is that the engineers and powers to be at Chrysler will not give certification on any of the chassis to be used as a dedicated ambulance.
We have mainly a BLS service but in the larger centres there are Advance Life Support and Infant Transport Teams. We also have air, land and sea. Helicopters are provide by Private Companies and well as Fixed Wing Aircraft. Most Fire Departments in the province provide First Response all though some have opted out.

my department runs firefighting and rescue calls only, reason being because we cover a 268 sq mile area with 5 rigs and 5 tenders so we're pretty thinly stretched

I workin in Ontario, Canada. We provide only EMS here, Fire is a Seperate Service. EMS is Funded by the County, and Fire is Funded by the City. Fire Here have very limited knowledge in Medicine & Patient Care, If both Services are tiered and Fire Arrives before EMS, they'll Provide First Response however only carry O2 and an AED. EMS Provide all the Patient Care, Drug Aministration, Manual Defib, IV thereapy etc.

My department provides both Fire and EMS. As of right now I am a volunteer fire fighter but as soon as the EMT-B class is available again I am going to take it.

Were a vol. Dept here in halifax PA. we have a seperate EMS for our town that is not connected with us at all financially. But we run all the EMS A.E.D. calls to assist the ambulance because we have many emt's with our dept and our respone beats ems by a few minutes. Then if they place 1 of there ambulances out of service we run all the ems calls in conjunction with there remaining ems unit.
