Here at my department all fire calls get the same response initially. 1 engine and 1 75' quint with 2 or 3 men depending on the day. Some days we might not even have an officer on duty. If it is a working fire we will get the chief and call back of the department bringing 2 more engines and 10 or 12 more men.

Fort Lauderdale, FL Fire-Rescue
Initial dispatch for structure fire: 3 Engines, 1 Ladder, 1 Rescue, 2 Battalion Chiefs & EMS supervisor.
Working Fire: brings an additional Ladder (RIT), Air/Light truck, and Fire Investigator. Also, command will usually ask for a 2nd rescue to setup medical sector, since the 1st due rescue usually goes to work with the engine company.
All Engines & Ladders have 1 Officer, 1 Driver/Engineer, and 1 FF
All Rescues (ambulances) have 2 FF minimum, sometimes 3
All command officers have just 1.
Typically the first due engine & rescue on scene arrive at the same time approximately, and will advance the first line. Second due engine establishes water supply, then conducts searches or pulls the 2nd line. Third due engine pulls the 2nd/3rd line, or conducts searches. First due ladder conducts Truck Co. Ops, Second due ladder stands by as RIT. The three command officers assume command, accountability, and safety officer positions. Air/Light truck sets up rehab, with the 2nd due rescue providing medical treatment & monitoring
