Default West Michigan EMS question

I grew up in the Kalamazoo/Portage area but haven't been back there in years. I was just wondering if anyone can tell me who has the Primary 911 contracts for the cities of Portage and Kalamazoo now? I believe it was Mall City Ambulance back when I lived there or Life EMS but I could be mistaken.

Mall City Ambulance went out of business. The area is now served by Life EMS and Pridecare EMS.

Ok so then do both companies have the contract and just split up the areas or do they do a "whoever gets on scene first" gets the call type of thing?

It's divided up geographically, but I'm not sure exactly how. All I know for sure is that Lifecare out of Battle Creek covers Ross Township in the NE corner. The rest, last I knew, was a rather convoluted patchwork.
