Topic of analysis: The population of your community has grown considerably during the past decade, and the demand for additional emergency medical services (EMS) has increased accordingly. Presently, the fire department has one paramedic ambulance unit (PAU) staffed 24/7 by full-time paramedics who do not participate in fire suppression operations except as fire-ground EMS and rehab personnel. The mayor has asked the fire chief to analyze the feasibility of adding a second full-time PAU to the community fire department. Because you have taken a number of college-level fire science courses while earning a degree from an online university, the chief asks you to research and write a paper that either supports or rejects the mayor’s assessment that a second PAU is needed.
Write a paper that addresses each of the six components, providing sufficient analysis and composition that reflects a professional level response. Remember that each of the six components must be addressed in response to the mayor’s goal and objective so that your paper either supports or rejects the request.
The paper should conform to APA requirements and format. This paper should have a cover page, three pages of text, and a reference page. Text font and size are to be Times New Roman, 12pt., and margin settings should be one inch for all sides. Your paper should be double-spaced. Proper grammar and spelling are expected as well as this is a professional college-level paper.
