FD response in some cases is all well and good, but proportion of response is necessary too. A full pumper/tanker with a crew of four is rarely needed. A smaller squad/rescue truck with two on board can render initial aid.

I'd rather have the engine in service at the station in case of fire than out bandaging a stubbed toe.

FYI, Detroit Fire does not respond on EMS runs unless FD services are required (accident, rescue, etc.).
