They always send fire trucks along with ambulances even if there’s no report of fire. Seems like a waste of resources.

They're sent for manpower assistance. There are many times when I ran rescue in Virginia that we needed the assistance of firefighters to carry a person up or down stairs, etc.

See post 137. One of the lowlights of the old man’s career. :-)

A couple of years ago, I was diagnosed with an atrial flutter. My doctor gave me an EKG, and then said he was going to admit for some more protest. He said I’d have to go by ambulance. I complained, saying I could jog over to the hospital, but he insisted. So the ambulance showed up ALONG with a fire engine w/ladder. It was a one-story building. My insurance covered $500 but I had to spring for $150 for the fire truck. Then the ambulance started to take me to the wrong hospital.
