Seth, I got an inquiry into one of the 911 EMS dispatchers about this. I'll let you know as soon as I hear.Does anyone know why Rural/Metro Rochester switched from numbers in the 900's to numbers in the 700's recently? Or did they add 700 series units. I hear them using both.
Rural/Metro has always had 7000-series numbers, since the countywide fire/EMS numbering system went into effect (back when it was still National). Monroe was using 9000-series numbers, along with the various industrial EMS units.
Carl,Not 100% true.
Spider-Man and OP... Stopped in at ECD tonight and got caught up on quite a bit. The 7000 series was changed when Xerox ambulance began running back whenever. Theirs and the Rural Metro ambulances conflicted with the unit numbers which prompted metro to change to the 9000 series.
I guess the reason for the change BACK to the 7000 series is Xerox is no longer operating an ambulance.
