When I call for an ambulance, why do I sometimes see an ambulance from another town?
The District has mutual aid agreements with many neighboring towns so that calls are handled expeditiously. During the course of a day it is not unusual for two or three calls for an ambulance to come in at the same time. If all of DWFD’s ambulances are busy, one from the next available town will be dispatched. The mutual aid agreements work both ways; therefore, DWFD ambulances can be dispatched to the other municipalities.
