Unusual, interesting and different calls
How many departments regularly attend calls that would be considered 'out of the ordinary' for a fire service?
My station (75 Berowra, New South Wales Fire Brigades) receives training in and attends calls to catch snakes in homes and yards. We attend up to 4 a day, and snakes we catch include the tiger snake, death adder and brown snake, which are among the most dangerous and deadly in the world (2 are in the top 5).

Once while with a volunteer department in Florida, we got toned out at 12:30 AM on a Saturday for a "snake in the house" - only person responded was our Chief!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hate snakes with a passion! Better you than me!
Used to have to be careful at the Air Force FD I worked there.Hadto keep your bunkers off the floor or you were liable to find a rattler or water moccasin in them.
