I called for an ambulance, why did the fire truck respond?

Category: General Questions
In the City of La Crosse the firefighters are trained to deliver emergency medical care prior to the arrival of the ambulance (all firefighters on LCFD are Emergency Medical Technicians). Many times the fire trucks arrive minutes before the ambulance. The firefighters also assist ambulance personnel in lifting and moving patients from the basement or second story of the home to the ambulance.
