All Red Bank Fire Department members are trained in First Aid and CPR and are considered first responders. A First Responder is a person trained to arrive on the scene and provide immediate care to a person having a medical emergency. RBFD fire engines carry medical equipment including heart defibrillators/monitors and oxygen. When a medical emergency occurs the 911 dispatcher will determine whether a fire engine can arrive quicker than a ambulance, which may be out of the district on another call. The RBFD has saved many lives due to our quick response to life-threatening medical emergencies prior to the arrival of an ambulance.
Fire Department units are dispatched according to information received by the 911 operator. The RBFD thinks pessimistically when they respond to citizens in need of help. In other words, the firefighters are prepared to deal with the worst that could happen. They are fast, well-trained, and pleasant in their response. A computer selects the closest unit to respond to an incident. Depending on the nature of the emergency the dispatcher may send more than a single fire station. The fire department's philosophy is to get our firefighters there as soon as possible. There may be three fire department vehicles on the scene of what appears to be a "simple" incident. However, in emergency services, we have learned that if we assume something "simple," we can be horribly mistaken. Plus, we respond as fast as we can prepared to encounter the worst. The winner in these situations will always be the citizens who need help.
