When someone calls an ambulance, the trend is to send along a fire truck (in the US anyway). Other than to relieve the tedium of waiting for a fire to break out, what is the reason?

Obviously, there is an epidemic of spontaneous human combustion.

Fun possibly true factoid: In Virginia, or certain parts thereof, the phenomenon is particularly egregious because funding is partially determined by whichever orginization shows up on the scenes of accidents first.
