Broken nose = Stretcher + 3 Paramedics + Ambulance. Will Larry Parker or John Edwards be taking this one?

So five people to respond to a broken nose emergency call? How much did that cost the citizens? When my daughter had to be taken by ambulance in LA from LACMA to Cedar Sinai only 2 paramedics in an ambulance no additional fire truck. Does Redlands bill more for emergency calls than LA since 5 people respond in Redlands compared to 2 people in LA?
