Brush Season, Rural Vollie Dept.
With this summer coming and temperatures expecting exceed over 100 degrees for over a week at a time. The officer staff has been tasked to revise company operations to remain at normal operating "levels" and be ready for brush fires all over the district. Now as I mentioned in the state subform (Arkansas), my department operates at full capactiy nearly 100% of the time. Now, we have recently developed an automatic mutual aid with the surrounding departments that gives us an additional fifty more miles in our district.
We have some ideas such as:
station deployments: one report of a brush fire takes a service, a brush. Verified large fires will be sent an engine and a tanker.
keep our normal staffings: all three brush trucks and all three service trucks and one engine.
more ideas to come.
If you have any ideas that would help us, please post them here,
