I did look and might of over looked it. In the 10 codes just states what the emergency is, not the dispatch response. For example if a 10-75 is transmitted, does the type of occupancy of the bldg change the response. Vacant=1 BLS, OMD=1 BLS,1 ALS.etc... Something like that was trying to find. Where I work it does? We don't have BLS just ALS trucks. Will send 1 at first and than a 2 is dispatched when a working alarm has been given. 1 for triage/rehab the other transport if need be.

What's the point in having all this kit if you only have four paras and ten or so techs to use it? Are there seriously only 6 ambulances sent? When do you need more officers than medics?

The problem with EMS, (has been better lately) was that they would send units and say check and tell me what you need.  I don't know how many times I responded to things and never got close to what the Matrix said. We asked they would say it's a recommended guideline only. It wasn't like the FD, were you give the signal and the dispatcher fills it out based on the matrix. I would say the recently it has been alot better and you do get more units then in the past.

The 10-60's are used for building collapses and things like that.  Ambulances will be called as needed and the 4 and 2 is just the basic they want sent.

When you mention, "Ambulances will be called as needed and the 4 and 2 is just the basic they want sent", Are you referring to 4 BLS and 2 ALS ambulances ???  Thank you !!

Yes. the 4 and 2 is BLS vs ALS.  Sorry for the delay in responding. I would have to look at the matrix again, one of them had something with the amount of patients but I cant remember it.

 Just Click on the "EMS section" of this site, and go through page 1 and 2. Alot has been discussed there. Basically MERV stands for Mobile Emergency Room Vehicle, and MRTU stands for Mobile Respiratory Therapy Unit.
