Responses to different types of calls?
I'm just curious, but what types of resources are dispatched to different types of calls?
I.e. I've heard that here in LA County, a structure fire will typically get 3 engines, a ladder truck, battalion chief and paramedic squad, and a medical call will get a paramedic squad, engine and a BLS Ambulance.
But what about other types of calls? Like say a car accident? Or any other common calls?
And what do engine crews and truck crews do on these calls?
While I am primarily interested in Los Angeles County/Southern California since that's where I live/work. But I'd be more than happy to hear about other parts of the country, whether its FDNY or a small rural vollie dept.
Thanks in advance!
