Why does a fire truck respond to my 911 call for a medical emergency?

Your 911 call is answered at the Volusia County Communication Center, and while you are on the phone with a 911 Dispatcher an Advanced Life Support Fire Truck with a Paramedic and an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) respond to treat your emergency condition. An ambulance also responds to provide transport to the hospital so that the Fire/Rescue personnel can remain in the City to respond to the next emergency call. Any billing done for the patient transport will be from Volusia County - EVAC ambulance. There is no charge for Fire/Rescue services.
