DAILY JOURNAL STAFF REPORT
The Redwood City Fire Department isnow using a rescue squad vehicle for med-ical calls to ease the wear and tear on theladder truck and free up the more specializedequipment for other types of emergencies.The pilot program launched Squad 409last week and uses a fire captain and fire-fighter/paramedic already on staff. Thesquad will be dispatched for medical calls inDistrict Nine — downtown Redwood Cityand areas east of El Camino Real — and, asneeded, support other responses at trafficaccidents and building fires in bothRedwood City and San Carlos.Other cities and departments already usethe squad concept which acknowledges thatnot every fire department call requires a fullresponse. In 2013, for instance, theRWCFD ladder vehicle Truck 9 ran morethan 2,700 calls total which limited itsavailability for other incidents like largefires and caused unnecessary wear.“We think Squad 409 will provide a valu-able service to our community, while givingour specialized equipment the break it needsso it can continue to do its job,” Fire Chief Jim Skinner said in a prepared statement.“Additionally, Squad 409 increases our abil-ity to respond to disasters that may occur.”The squad vehicle is a four-door FordExcursion already in the department’s fleetthat is equipped with basic supplies andbeing outfitted to carry more extensiveitems. Squad 409 is expected on the road inFebruary.While Squad 409 response to medicalcalls, the county’s privately contractedambulance service American MedicalResponse will transport patients to localhospitals.
