What are the details of your CERT program. This seems like a fairly capable vehicle. I see several medical bags, AED, oxygen, and a scoop stretcher.

depends on the CERT Team some teams take the car home with one crew members or others store it at a local building eg fire station, we keep our car in the shed at the bush nursing center, our response time is we have 8mins after the pager goes off to get to the car and respond on the radio then we roll we are notified by pager from the 000 call at the same time as the ambulance crew and in our area case the duty bush nurse as well , ambulance times can depend on where the nearest ambulance is our closet ACO ambulance crew are 25mins away and closest paramedic ambulance crew are 35mins away, we can lest ESTA know that that patient dose not require transport so yes we can cancel the ambulance.
