Any vol. dept placing a 1st resp truck with a driver at his home or work?
None with water (or really close to me for that matter...). But I have seen several in CT that have an Officer's SUV or P/up that rotates among who has duty that night -- carries EMS equipment, command stuff, lots of fire extinguishers. I'd just wonder about freezing weather with the water, plus some of the more advanced BLS stuff can't freeze (EPI-pens).
It all depends on where your from and what your going to
Many times I've gone to fairly serious calls "on the quiet" 'cause I know lights & sirens won't get me there any faster -- and turn around to a not-so-serious call at a time of day I need them just to pull out of the station...

My department has something similar. Guys volunteer to stay within five minutes of the station. In combination with the guys who live around the station, it keep response times low.
And this budgetary year, we got an extra 60k from the township to pay the guys to do it!"Captain 1 to control, retone this as a structure and notify the fire chief...."
Safety is no accident.
