Does Austin Fire Department (Texas) have ALS Engines?
I'm currently a Firefighter/Paramedic in Wisconsin. At my fire department, we house ALS ambulance that is incorporated with the fire department. I applied for the City of Austin Fire Department and am wondering what their situation is with EMS? If you're a firefighter, does that mean that you will always be on an engine or truck? Or can you act as a Fire-Medic? I can't say that it would be a deal breaker for me but I do have an interest in keeping my paramedic license and staying current with EMS.
