    yes, and patient care is handed by a non-fire agency

    With 3 people on duty and a transporting ALS ambulance the engine and ambulance respond in tandem as one company. There is no set drill for who does what at scene because you never can tell who might show up, PCFs, rookie interns, students, mutual aid companies, etc. The same person may do lots of functions on scene. The exception to this is the paramedic will be attached to the patient, it's the law and only right.

    Yes. We handle everything: fire, rescue and EMS. We carry a Hurst tool on both our utility (which responds to all calls) and our truck.

    I'm the no.

    Extrication is handled by EMS. It's fairly common in NJ, although not as much as it used to be, for FD to not do EMS and/or Extrication. That does seem to be changing though.

    No... The city has two differnt organizations. We have the main fire department which has all the pumpers ladders etc... However we also have a Rescue Medical Services in town that handels the Resuce part. Not all to common around here. However we go to all MVA's that the Rescue is disptached too...

    If our department performs it, my engine company is equipped to do it (with the obvious exception of aerial ops). We probably have the largest pumper in the county (38' long) and carry as much on it as possible... including a full set of rescue tools & airbags.

    Rescue is a sub-unit of our FD. Fire attends all Rescue calls. No EMS calls for us; we have a private ambulance service.

    In my Town, Our Dispatch Center sends 2 Fire Departments. More than likely you will get 2 Rescues and an Engine. You also get a BLS Ambulance and an ALS Fly Car. Not to mention the Police Department

    If by the simple statement you are asking then yes we do. Extrication is a generic term these days. Just removing a patient from a car or house by manual means is considered extrication. I do believe you are referring to the use of hydraulic tools to remove portions of vehicles that hinder the removal of patients from said vehicle.

    Yes, we handle fire suppression, extrication, technical rescue, hazmat, and intial patient care. We have a county EMS service that provides patient care upon arrival with ALS services. We run a fully equipted rescue unit out first, followed by a engine carring additional rescue tools from our main station, Station two rolls a small rescue followed by our heavy rescue unit on all calls. Two additional engines respond for personnel or traffic control if need.

    Yes we do extrication....If my 5 years on the dept we've done 1 extrication
    If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?
