The Salibury Fire Department was dispatched to Margaret Street for a reported shooting involving 2 patients. Responding units include
Paramedic 16
Paramedic 2
Truck 1
Engine 1
Engine 161
Assistant Chief 1

Two ambulances, 3 fire trucks and 1 command vehicle. Isn't this a little overkill with 4 fire vehicles and 2 ambulances for 2 patients. More fire trucks than ambulances and an EMS call. Twenty or more firemen on this call for what? How can this be justified? Who is responsible for this poor leadership? This clearly is a waste of money and resources.

Especially when we have a potenial disaster situation ongoing this is overkill with resourses.

wouldnt you want a response like this for a family member...More man power helps with CPR if you have ever done CPR you would know you tire quickly...

To 12:36, what if there were more victims than known? What if it was your family? I am not a first responder, but I notice that you are not commenting about SPD. I'm sure they flooded the place, and rightfully so. The citizens of Salisbury are paying these men and woman regardless, so the only added expense would be the fuel used to get there. Lighten up, and let these heroes do their jobs.

There was more advanced life support (als) on the fire equipment. They were utilized to help with both patients. Plus it is always nice to have more people around to detour the shooters from coming back.

When they respond an ambulance they respond a truck. It gives them additional manpower for any extraction,lifting heavy patients, getting supplies from the rig while the paramedics are working on the patient, extra driver if both are needed in the back, and to keep family members away from the paramedics so they can work. Once it determined they don't need them they are returned to station.

Yeah that along with The city needing 5 or 6 workers to look at 1 water meter and take a reading...

That is part of the problem....

Guys just do your job. everybody is stuck inside today and will be on the computer complaining until their electric goes out.

I would want a few buddies around me too if someone is shooting people.

Please stop the arm chair quarterbacking. There are national, state, and local regulations that dictate much of which our emergency services do. Instead of complaining, educate yourself about proper procedures, where the direction comes from and if it still upsets you, get a life.
Or you can let me know and I'll follow you around and tell everyone what I disagree with.
Try love, not hate.

A half dozen more police officers patrolling the area, might have been able to prevent the crime to begin with...
