As a ski patroller I have been trained and certified in transporting patients off the hill and or to a ambulance. But in my fire training we have not been formally trained in transporting patient, and thus not certified in doing so.
To be clear I am not trying to see if we do or don't do it, or should or shouldn't. If its in the best interest of the patient and you have sufficient medical training to do so safely then its your call (and I would).
So with that being said, I don't think they're allowed to on the legal side of things. Patient care would have been greatly delayed if the fire crew had not made that decision so it turns into a debate about doing what's right vs following all the rules.
