    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!!
    (I am not a junior member. I've been a FF for 13 years!!)

    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.

    1964 Ford 750gal 750gpm bought new back when firetrucks were affordable.
    1974 Ford 1600gal tanker who's chassis was bought for 500 dollars about 12 years ago from local propane gas dealer that retired it and had it setting in a fence row,and an old stationary tank.

We have 2 towers, 2 ladders, 2 trucks, 1 heavy rescue, 4 medium rescues, various light duty rescues, a number of tankers and brush units for the rural end of the county. The call loads run from 1,600 to less than 200 depending on location of station. We respond to Fire, EMS, Haz-Mat, Extrication, Water rescue, and "Help, I've fallen and can't get up" at 0200 most mornings.
