    Population: 5000
    Area: 50 Sq. miles
    Firefighters: 45 POC/4 Jrs./8 cadets.
    2 stations

    Also cover/mutual aid agreements for 3 other towns. Which could add 100 or more sq. miles to our "area".

    Budget: Roughly $1500.00 per year from township; town provides insurance and utilities, maybe another $500 if we ask nice. Remainder ($3-4,000.00 a year) from fundraisers. Kinda slim, but we get by.

    3.2 square miles
    11,000 residents
    2 paid fire prevention staff (M-F 0700-1800), also respond
    About 42 volunteers
    4 engines (three ours plus a state-owned one)
    2 ambulances
    1 water tender
    1 utility truck
    3 staff vehicles

    We primarily stay in our town, but do occasionally get called for mutual aid (we're the only volunteer department in the area). We do respond on wildland fires statewide though both with our frontline engine and our state OES engine. We've even respond out-of-state occasionally (Arizona about 4 years ago).

    We cover 10 miles of Interstate 95. Our coverage area is approximately 100 square miles and has a population of approximately 1200 people. We also do mutial aid for 4 surrounding districts. We run between 140 to 160 calls a year. I've been on for 5 years and I think our lowest was like 120. We have 20 people on the roster.
