I am writing a paper for a class im taking. My question is.....
1. How many people are on your engine / ladder per shift?
2. What is the minimum staffing level for them?
3. Does your engine run on all EMS calls?
I work for a small 2 station dept. in southern AZ. Our engine can only respond with our ambulance on cardiac calls or unconcious unresponsive. The ambulance currently has to wait till they get onscene until they can requst the engine if needed. Our minimum staffing level is 2 on the engine 3 if we are at full staff and then 2 on the ambulance.
Thanks for your help.
