    Our responses are pre-determined so there is no question of which to bring. A second alarm brings a pre-determined number of apparatus. The IC can also request a specific type of apparatus, in which case, that type is dispatched. If you are dispatched for a tanker, you take the tanker. Keeps things simple.

    We mutual aid to a rural dept. often and we usually run our tanker first followed by a personnel car. We usually dont run an engine unless it is within thier city limits or where they have hydrants. Simply because our engine is 30 years old and not the most reliable vehicle we have and our quint is too big to fit down some of thier country roads. Our quint also has a 2000 gpm pump on it and there are concerns about water supply.
