What the ALS Response Truck is For...

Finishing up 12 on the Responce truck, always an interesting detail...

We used to use our ALS response vehicles to provide Paramedic medical back-up to our ALS crews and as an occasional public service to the EMS agencies on our borders who sometimes ended up short- staffed.
We used to...

Now we use it to:
  • Buy time so the public doesn't learn all their ALS ambulances are out on BLS inter-facility transports
  • As the night time and weekend source of ALS for the smaller services on our border who have managed to scare away most of their own paramedics
  • For the Manager and/ or supervisors to get breakfast, lunch and dinner under the pretence of "picking up the mail"
