Program Summary

Specially equipped units called Community Medicine Units (CMU) are dispatched to medical and behavioral calls that are considered low-level emergencies. (The units were renamed in January 2016). Now, when residents call 911 for non-life threatening emergencies, a Advanced Practitioner CMU is dispatched for medical calls and a Behavioral Health CMU for behavioral calls that is dispatched to their home or location at the time. This is important since 80 percent of the calls that come into the 911 control system that is operated by Mesa Fire and Medical Department are of a medical nature.
