Why is a fire engine sent when I call for an ambulance?
All Mesquite Fire Department Engines are staffed with at least one Paramedic and are equipped as advanced cardiac life support first responders. This gives the engine crew the capability to provide advanced airway access and administer cardiac drugs. A fire engine is sent automatically to assist an Ambulance (Mobile Intensive Care Unit (MICU)) on unconscious persons, cardiac complaints, breathing difficulties, active seizures, trapped persons and major vehicular collisions.
