Thread: units to a MVA?

Our response to a MVC or pedestrian accident is an Engine Company and Rescue. The IC can upgrade or downgrade the response as necessary."The education of a firefighter and the continued education of a firefighter is what makes "real" firefighters. Continuous skill development is the core of progressive firefighting. We learn by doing and doing it again and again, both on the training ground and the fireground."

Depends on the situation and location.
Minimum is at least a Med Unit and an Engine. Possible trapped victim(s) and roll-overs gets a Truck and a Rescue dispatched, as well, EMS Supervisor and a Battalion Chief. If a fire is involved, then all the above is dispatched.
We also have 2 Life Flights on standby if needed.
FM1I'm the one Fire and Rescue calls, when they need to be Rescued.

We are a rural county department but we try to, and usually do man rescue 24-7. With that in mind it is probably considered a light rescue with at minimum 2 man.
For injury we roll 1 rescue, 1 engine, 1 ambulance (all our county units are ALS) and 1 heavy rescue (from our county ems as well) and county sheriff (at minimum 1 car sometimes more) depending on the road, highway patrol will send a car usually arriving later. We do not allow POV on scene unless it is an officer and they are passing by the scene before getting to the station but that usually does not happen. This is all subject to being canceled by EMS if they arrive first or the engine gets canceled if the rescue arrives and there is no need for them. Lots of variables I guess.

Since EMS is provided by the Region ( municipality ) our response to all MVC's includes 1 rescue, 1 pumper, and 1 tanker ( blocker ). EMS dipatches their own rigs and supervisors so we could get anywhere from 1 ambulance to multiples, including air.
