Why does a Fire Engine sometimes come when I call for an ambulance?
Depending on the nature of the, call Fire engine companies will respond with the ambulance to provide additional help if it is a serious call. If the ambulance from that district is already on a call, the Engine will respond to provide help until an ambulance form another station or from a Mutual Aid City (if all ours are out) can get there. TCFD has paramedic capable Engines which means many times you will have paramedic help there before the ambulance arrives.
How many ambulances does Texas City Fire Department operate?
We operate three front line units which consist of two BLS/MICU units at Stations 2 and 3 and a BLS/MICU Transport Rescue from the Central Fire Station. We have in reserve one Rescue truck and two ambulances that we can cross man in cases of emergency.
What does it mean when a hospital is on “drive by”?
This means that for some reason the hospital has reached a level of patients where if any more are brought in they will experience extremely long wait times for treatment. Hospitals advise the ambulances of this so that they may go to another hospital that does not have as many patients. This is to provide the patient the best care as soon as possible.
