Why do I sometimes see a fire truck respond with an ambulance when there is no fire?


The Town of Lawrence has Medical First Responders that are dispatched along with the ambulance to medical calls. Many of these First Responder’s are also members of the Lawrence Fire Dept. If those members are close to or at the fire station when a call comes in they will take a fire truck to the call, as our fire trucks also carry medical equipment. The City of DePere Fire/Rescue provides the paramedic level ambulance service and transport to the hospital.
