The fire service is strategically well positioned to deliver a proper time critical response and some kind of effective patient care as soon as possible. Therefore, the fire service has become the first-line medical responder for critical illnesses and injuries in almost every community. They are life savers who are ready to respond at any time.

There are many system models that are capable of providing fire service to deliver emergency medical services. The three primary models include fire departments using cross-trained/multi-role firefighters for EMS first response and ambulance transport; fire departments using firefighters for EMS first response and civilians who are not cross-trained as firefighters for ambulance transport; and fire departments who use firefighters for EMS first response and non-fire department organizations for ambulance transport.
