I am heading to Pittsburgh on business. As always, I look up to get an idea of the fire and ems service provided. The fire and ems are separate services, with the FD doing first response. I was looking at the roster of fire apparatus and I noticed they didn’t have heavy rescues, hazmat units or many boats (the city has 3 large rivers running right through it). I looked a little further, and ems has 2 heavy rescues, a haz-mat unit, and swift water rescue boats. As far as I know, Pittsburgh is the largest city I know of where ems has the primary responsibility for such tasks (FD does assist when needed). Does anyone know of any bigger city that is organized in such a fashion?
