  1. My understanding is they roll on medical calls but as soon as the AMR paramedics show up they step away and go back to their station. So unless someone is saying that AMR is too overwhelmed to respond to calls at this time, it is not clear what we get out of them in basic medical calls. If they didn’t roll on medical calls they wouldn’t be very busy since we have so few fires and right now very few accidents.

  2. While a noble thought that makes people “feel good” there is more to this. The first responders have plenty in their budgets for food. They are never “not fed”. In large scale incidents such as fires private companies are paid to provide the food. If this is replaced by donated food it results in waste and harm to the private company (thus more unemployment). During a recent fire in LA area Facebook group posts had people bragging “I just delivered pizza to this location “(fire staging). Or I just dropped off breakfast burritos at x location. It turned into a fury of outdoing each other. Then the posts started coming in from the first responders staff NO MORE FOOD DONATIONS. I agree with those suggesting the unemployed and food banks should get the meals.
