When i look at series like paramedics, I see even by a "chestpain" call a fire truck at the scene. Here (in the Netherlands) a fire truck only responds to medical calls when there is a resuscitation goïng on. In the cities with professional fire fighters the crew drives out at each of these calls. In the low-residental areas were there are only voluntairy fire fighters the fire department and police only get's a call when there are no ambulances within 10 minutes of the call. They respond with CPR and AED (nothing more). Every other medical call (no matter what urgent) is responded by the ambulance only. How does this work in U.S.A.? Is there always an fire truck responding, no matter what call of medical aid? Or is there a difference between voluntairy and professional fire departments? And who pais the bill of the Fire Dept. sending this truck? Or is this organized by the authorities?
