    Our volunteer department operates out of 20 stations. I'm not sure the exact size of the parish (county for non-louisianaians), but each station is no farther than 5 miles from a structure. Each station has one 2500 gal\ 1250 gpm mack tanker, with the main station in the each quadrant having a reserve truck. Our "central" station houses our 75' Pierce Snorkel and new foam pumper, as well as a tanker, and brush truck. We are strictly volunteer and protect a population of around 25,000 i think.

    Everyone seems to care about the number of stations. How about the Number of stations for a given population density? What about staffing levels? The fire service has bought response times hook, line and sinker because it's an easy concept the public can understand (and b/c of NFPA standards) but I would rather run in a jurisdiction that has leadership that can address staffing levels in lieu of firehouses on top of each other,as is so common in much of this country. For lack of a better term this is CAPABILITY IN SEARCH OF NEED. FTM-PTB
