Why do so many apparatus respond to simple incidents?

Fire Department units are dispatched according to information received by the 911 operator. Firefighters are prepared to deal with the worst that could happen. In emergency services, we have learned that if we assume something is "simple" we can be horribly mistaken. Plus, we respond as fast as we can and try to be prepared for the worst. The winner in these situations will always be the citizen who needs help.
