    1ST Alarm - Bay Ridge Fire
    3 Engines
    1 Rescue
    1 Tanker
    1 Ambulance (Bay Ridge EMS)

    Multiple Alarm -
    1. FAST Team from Queensbury Central
    2. Our fire district is made up of different zones with a mutual aid plan for each zone, which the county communications center has on file. When requesting multiple alarms, the IC only needs to request for that specific zone. Ex. - "Bay Ridge Command to fire control...dispatch a 2ND and 3RD alarm assignment for Zone 4 to my location."

    Our Volunteer dept. will "dump the house": 2 engines, 1 heavy squad, 1 command vehicle and 1 rescue squad (ambulance).

    Our neighbors in the Toledo F.D. dispatch 3 engine cos., 1 truck, 1 heavy squad, 1 Battalion Chief and 1 safety officer (plus an ALS "Life Squad" ambulance if it is an occupied structure) for a regular alarm (aka structure fire).

    First alarm for a house is 4 engines, 1 truck, 1 rescue, 1 ems unit, battalion chief. For a commercial building, apartment, or highrise, it's the same except 2 trucks instead of 1. Also for a highrise we send an extra battalion chief and sometimes an ems captain.
