The minimum is cat 1 which will be trained occasional fire fighters with hand held fire fighting appliances, usually found at grass strips, up to Cat 10 like Heathrow.

for non airfield regs see CAP 789  http://www.skybrary.aero/bookshelf/books/1654.pdf

Annex 3 to Chapter 21 would cover Hospital movements  ;)
