    New York City Vs. Westchester & Nassau

    I'd guess it's not quite a dramatic drop, but more so a gradual drop as your cross the borders. Most likely having to do with density, socioeconomic status, zoning, etc. But, like you I have no hard numbers to back this up.

    Yes and no... Proportionally most departments respond to many more EMS runs than FDNY suppression. Most departments are sending companies to all EMS runs where they'll initial patient contact, stop the clock and then potentially wait hours for a EMS transport unit to be available.
