    1) Are private qualified (emt/paramedic/etc) resources dispatched to the same incidents as your own employed crews or are they targeted towards lower category calls?

    Predominantly PAS resources are targeted towards lower acuity calls. However if the resource has an appropriately skilled crew member (Paramedic or Technician) on board then they may attend higher priority calls.

    2) number of c1 incidences where a private resource was stood down and replace with a EEAST resource on the same incident from January 2018 to date.

    Please see the table below.

    3) are private provider crews given the opportunity to take meal break on an EEAST station or expected to take it on the road/in their vehicle/away from a station?

    All PAS providers can have their meal breaks on a EEAST station.
