    Default Emergency Response Laws

    I have been told that in Wisconsin Fire Dept.s are required to respond to all MVAs w/injuries unless the responding ambulance has extrication equipment. I am assuming this is a precaution.
    What I need to know is is this the same in Illinois. If so where can I find the laws, any help would be appreciated.

    Do an internet search for Ill laws (or statutes or code or whatever you have). Your state legislature web page probably has all of them. Findlaw.com is also a good resource for looking up laws.
    If it's a good site, you could do a word search on it or you can just dig through the sections (which hopefully for you have titles on them). Just keep in mind that politicians have a habit of putting things under screwy titles. This law (if it exists) could fall under public safety, traffic, vehicles, police, highways, health care, or resposibilities of government agencies, etc.
    Good luck.

    That's the way it is in MD all fire department respond to MVA with injuries. None of our ambulances carry extrication equipment. But yeah with every MVA fire and EMS repsond. I don't know where you can find this law or anything.
