This particular truck carries a crew of three firefighters / paramedics and serves out of one station. Instead of juggling responses between an ambulance and a fire truck, the crew is able to respond to all types of incidents in this single vehicle. They respond to medical emergencies on a daily basis and transport patients directly to the hospital in this Transport Pumper. In the rare event of a structure fire during patient transport, the crew will complete transport of the patient and then respond with other units to the fire. South Ogden FD is also served by several frontline Pierce fire apparatus, including a pumper and an aerial, that are available for first due fire calls.
