How come firetrucks show up when I call 911 for a medical emergency?
When a 911 call is placed the dispatchers are trained and certified in a program we use called Emergency Medical Dispatching (EMD). Depending on the nature/severity of the call it will recommend that a fire company be dispatched to assist with the incident. If there is only a fire company at a station they will be dispatched and are able to provide medical care until the closest ambulance arrives.
