The Springfield Fire Rescue Division expanded the reach of its emergency medical services with the establishment of combination companies. An ambulance billing program provided the funds to double the number of engine/paramedic companies to six.


Each medic unit ``is now staffed with an additional certified EMT or paramedic'' - for a total of three, according to a Citizens Guide to EMS. ``Depending on the nature of the emergency, crews will respond with either an ambulance or a fire truck (not both), whichever is appropriate.''

Medical calls account for about 11,000 runs annually. The number of ``working fires'' is a fraction of that.
