Busy, busy, busy.

Is the "PrimaCare" unit the transfer truck?
We're peace loving people, we're not hunting trouble, but if trouble should find us, we'll stand up and fight.

No, The Prima Care position is a single FRFD Paramedic working in an office inside the Prima Care Medical Center buildings. (3 converted mills, about 100 suites). If any office has any medical emergency, they call the Paramedic and he radios FRFD for an ambulance to respond, then he goes to the patient to begin patient care and meet the responding ambulance.
