Our first due is about 42 sqmi. Mostly rural residential, but with various commercial buildings including a nuclear power plant, a propane facility and several resturaunts and gas stations. We are also 2nd due to a LNG plant. In addition, we respond to water calls on the bay and a river. Our 2nd due/automatic aid area probably doubles that area.
All volunteer department out of 1 station with 2 engines, a heavy rescue squad, tanker, 2 ambulances, a zodiac, mass casualty unit and several brush and support vehicles.
