    Sounds like several large depts. We have 20 all voulteer members and try to keep up to 25 members at any one time. It is very hard to do in a rural area. We have two fire houses.

    2000 Ford f350 brush truck we build ourself and recieved several thousand dollars of grant money to do.
    1983 Mack 1000gal 1250gpm bought used four years ago.
    1974 Ford 500gal 1000gpm also bought used.
    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 two firehouses, one in both towns in township district.

    one chief and one asst. chief

    The Escambia County Fire/Rescue (Located in Nortwest Florida) is a combination department. We have 400+ volunteers and 50+ career. The career crews operate out of 9 stations weekdays when the county needs them the most. They man engine companies right now with 4 ALS. There are 16 volunteer stations, most having at least 2 engine companies. 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.
    The county Chief and Deputy Chief along with the two Battalion Chiefs are paid. The 16 stations have a Chief, Deputy, and Assistant, Capts, Lts and us working stiffs. I'm proud to be a volly, love my brothers and sisters volly or career, and hope y'all stay low.

    Marion VFD is an all Volunteer dept. We have a membership of 28. We serve an area just under 28 square miles most of which is wildlands. We have just under 1000 residents in our district. We also have in our district a 20 mile section of a 2 lane HWY. with a posted speed limit of 70 mph. We have no city water, we get our water from 2 lakes 1 small river and a few "dry" hydrants. We operate out of 1 station, but hope to build a 2nd larger one this year. We do not run EMS but plan on doing so in the future.

    We have 1 Chief, 1 Asst. Chief, 2 Captains.
    Our Apparatus:
    Engine 1) E-1 Hurricane custom cab w/1250 Hale pump, and 750 gal tank.
    Engine 2) E-1 4wd w/750 hale pump and 500 gal tank.
    Tender 1) Ford w/3500 gal tank.

    Here is a break down of our 911 calls from 2000.

    MVA- 14
    Fire, structure/vehicle- 12
    Wildland fire- 12
    ALERT ( locating LZ's )- 10
    False Alarms ( all good intent)- 9
    Mutual Aid- 4

    We did fight some of the large wild fires in Western Montana last year, those calls are not included in the above list as they were not 911 calls.

    I'm kind of the low-gal on the totem pole in the dept, but our little department is in the Town of Mohawk, Montgomery County, just over the Mohawk River from Exit 28, and we have a great department!About 28 members, consisting of a Chief, 1st and 2nd asst chief,capt,asst capt, lt, asst lt, EMS lt (one of 2 women-EMTs on department), a safety officer, sgt-at-arms, president, vp, secretary(that's me), treasurer and fin secretary. A bit under 300 calls a year. We have a 1999 Ford F550 Brush/Rescue/EMS vehicle w/mini-pumper & foam, a late model truck we use to haul our firegear, a command post and cascade system and room for about 6 in the back and 2 men (or women) up front, and 3 firetrucks-one of which is a 1800 gal tanker. We have a lot more EMS calls than fires and 6 of us are EMTs, one is a paramedic, another a EMT-CC, balance in basics. During EMS calls or MVAs, those members that are not EMTs are still there, backing us up - another pair of skilled hands, to assist with lifting, the paperwork and ALL. Sometimes we're so used to working together and so much in sync with each other, we just do our thing without talking. We have our 4th pancake breakfast this year on Sunday, March 11th, 2001. I usually make the cinnamon french toast which goes with the mountains of family-style pancakes, eggs, sausages with gravy, ham, applesauce, oj and coffee and milk. Sure, its a cow-town, and the pay is lousy, but I invite you all to take NYS Thruway Exit 28 to Fultonville, cross the River Bridge over the Mohawk, past the Fonda Speedway, take a left onto Route 5, then a right onto Route 30A and 2 miles straight ahead on the right for a look at our trucks and our team - bring your sleds, too! And we can talk about our departments over a cup of coffee. PS - I'm no "Junior" member-I'm a 43-year-old wife & mother and 9 year veteran of the dept.
