    My department is all volunteer. We provide Fire suppression, Rescue, and EMS. We operate out of 1 station, cover about 150 give or take square miles,in a rural area. We have 30 members, 13 are EMT's, 6 are ALS. Our officers are Chief, Asst. Chief, Capt., and 2 Lt.'s(I'm one) We run about 75 fire calls and 250 EMS calls in a year. We have no municipal water supply,(closed hydrant is 15 miles) so it's all dry hydrants,ponds, and tanker shuttle. Our apparatus is as follows:
    Fire 351- 1993 Freightliner/E-One 1250gpm/1250tank
    Fire 352- 1982 Chevrolet/Atlas 350gpm/1250 tank
    Fire 355- 1987 Chevrolet/Pierce 350gpm/350 tank Mini-Pumper
    Fire 356- 1973 Chevrolet Converted Oil Tanker 250gpm/1500tank
    Rescue 351- 1998 Chevrolet/Horton Type I 4x4 Ambulance
    Rescue 352- 1987 Chevrolet/Horton Type I
    Rescue 358- 2000 Freightliner/KME walk-around medium duty rescue (pictured in Dec 2000 apparatus showcase)

    We're located in Callands,Va. Our county (Pittsylvania) is the largest (in land area) in Va, and is served by 22 all volunteer fire departments, 5 or them provide EMS also, and 4 all vol. Rescue Squads. If our county had only one agency and was all these people and apparatus were counted together it would easily be a large and have a comparable call volume to rescue678250's. Stay safe everyone!

    First off, does your community know what they would do without you? Try to get that out there and maybe they'll come around.

    We came up with a brochure for our dept. that stated on the front in bold black letters,

    "What if you dialed 911, and no one came?"

    We have handed these out at some of the small country stores and even left some there as well. Even handed them out at our fundraisers. You would be amazed at the response we have gotten from those brochures.

    Also, funding can be had from grants. There are a multitude of grants out there, you just have to know where to look. Give me a hollar at westlake_23@prodigy.net and I'll get you some contact information on grant writing sessions. And anything else having to do with grants I can come up with.

    By the way, where are you located?

    Our Dept. has just become a combo dept. with 7 full time employees but still relies heavily on volunteers. We have 50 volunteers and 98% of all members are EMTs or above. We ran 2145 calls in year 2000 and cover an area of approx. 200 sqaure miles. Our equipment is as follows:

    1 medium rescue (used also as a truck company)
    3 non-transporting ambulance squads
    1 light rescue
    4 engines
    3 tenders
    2 brush trucks
    1 Humvee used as a command vehicle
    2 police-package sedans used as chiefs' vehicles

    Don't know where you are getting all those volunteers and it amazes me that you get 80 people to respond for a structure. We're lucky if we can fill out an engine and a rescue. We rely on mutual aid to fill out the box.

    Everyone keep the faith and keep safe!!

    Our dept. is small just 28 volunteers. Our equipment is up to date. We two tanker/pumpers, one regular pumper, one equipment van and a ditch jumper(brush truck). Also have pagers and fax machine that gives us location and time of incident. The one thing that a small community always should have and that's the fire siren. There's nothing like a call at 3a.m. and running to the firehouse with the siren blarring, one hell of a wake up.
