    Very busy a lot of old buildings still around. Aggressive inside firefighters. Look up the city history on their web site.

    Thanks for the info! I checked out the history and all like you said! Are their FF/EMT's detailed to the ambulance at all, or is it strictly riding the fire truck when you work there?
