In general, only full time fire services in Germany operate EMS units, but the 22, 000 volunteer fire companies usually do not.

In Berlin, however, some of the volunteer fire companies operate a car as an EMS first responder, a trend which in my opinion may become more common in the future.

EMS response is provided by several professional and volunteer organizations in Germany, even in cities where the fire service also provides them. And in some places the fire services house other EMS providers' units in their fire and/or ambulance stations too.
