Fire Suppression

The Fire Station is manned on a 24 hour basis by 4 shifts, each consisting of 1 Captain and 4 Firefighters. Each shift mans 3 Engines, 1 Ladder Truck, 1 Ambulance, and 1 Brush Fire Truck. In such cases where more manpower is required, off-duty personnel are called back to the Fire Station and Mutual Aid by surrounding communities is requested to assist in covering the Fire Station or assisting at the scene.
