Apparatus Types & Station Locations (Question)
So, as some are familiar (if you've seen my posts), I'm hoping to join the local Volunteer FD in the town I'll be moving to in northern New Jersey (Rutherford). This is when I (hopefully) go to college there.
According to their website (http://www.rutherfordfire.org) - their department consists of a ladder truck, three 'engines', a rescue unit and a "special services unit". All of these can be seen by going to their webste above and clicking on the three firehouse pictures (under the "Stations and Apparatus" link).
My question for you is - what do you prefer to work on? I'm curious about any reasons you've got, whether it's that you were simply assigned to it, you chose it for some reason (the specific mission; "cool" factor, etc.) or whatever.
I'd also like to get some input as to the specific missions of each type of unit. I've read the stuff online - but I'm hoping to get a bit more from different firefighters, as well.
