Gary IN. Fire Department- EMS?
I know Gary Fire Department staffs about 12 firehouses and runs multiple working fires a shift. I heard they have 6 ambos and run over 26,000 ems runs a year not even counting fire calls. I was curious do Gary Engine/ Quint's just run on fire related calls, or are the engines EMT-BLS level, Medic-ALS level or a mix of both? Do the engines/ Quint's assist the ambos and chase EMS runs with the ambo, or if the ambo is out of quarters. With their ambos running that many calls, what happends when they are out of quarters all day and get EMS runs, do the engine companies take them in? Thanks.
