    Ummm for my new FD it depends on the box area on what we get and what stations come. It's a county FD. They have 10+ box areas for one station... a lot of pop. packed into a TINY area and 4-5 stations in a 10 sq. miles radius!!! It's fun to see what come... a new exciting adventure everytime!!! CRAP I thought you were laying out... DOH!!! LOL

    Default Apparatus Response

    City: Rural:
    Quint
    Engine Tanker
    Rescue Tanker
    Utility Rescue
    Engine

    My dept currently has 1 engine and a quint for structural firefighting. If we have a fire in the rural area and we have manpower for the engine we call mutual aid for a stand by engine company. One of our tankers has a 550 gpm pump on it so we can use it for attack if needed. Fire alarms and smoke detector activations we send the quint "on the reds" and everything else "routine" or hold in quarters for the size up.


    MVA's Vehicle fires
    Engine Engine
    Rescue Tanker or Rescue
    Utility

    For vehicle fires we use our tanker for water supply and traffic control as it has a 99" arrow stick and chevron striping on the rear or the rescue for manpower if needed.

    Good luck with your chief!!

    Stay safe everyone!

    Default Our response

    We cover 254 sq miles with 7 stations. All stations have at minimum of 1 Engine, 1 Tender and 1 Brush Truck. Stations are designated as East side/West Side and also have geo boundaries. With that said...on a "normal" call you will usually get 3 to 4 stations. SOPs say that on a residential structure fire you get 3 Engines (2 to the scene and one to tip a dry hydrant). All the stations in the geo area respond a tender. If its a commercial structure ALL district tenders respond. We also have a "Squad" (really its a box truck/equipment vehicle) that also responds to all structure fires.

    For extrication calls we have 4 stations able to do extrication. The 2 closest stations are supposed to respond their Engines. (I think...it has changed a 1000 times...LOL).

    continuing from above...

    *Engine 1
    *Equipment 1
    *Rescue 1

    MVA:
    *Engine 1
    *Rescue 1
    *Tenders 1&2

    Wildland:
    *Engine 1
    *Engine 2
    *Tenders 1&2
    *Ranger 1 (75 gal)
    *Goats 1&2 (200 gal)

    *As for most small volunteer departments, mutual aid becomes a necessity during daytime calls. Mutual Aid companies bring manpower and equipment that we are unable to staff with out manpower. We have 5 regular companies we call for aid, anywhere from 10 minutes out to 30 minutes, depending on location, time of day, and department.

    We are a pretty small FD with two stations. Responses are district engine (officer and 2 FF's) to hazardous conditions, brush fires, alarm system problems, etc; district engine and the rescue truck (2 additional FF's) to MVA's, haz-mat incidents, gas leaks; and both engines and the ladder (same 2 FF's from the rescue truck) to automatic alarms and reported structure fires. One or two chiefs will respond to confirmed rescues, haz-mat, or structure fires.

    A working fire has 8 FF's on the first alarm with 1 or 2 (of 3) chief officers responding if confirmed. Additional FF's are either from call back personnel or mutual aid. We rarely have more than 14 at a working fire and typically have 10 to 12, including chiefs, at a major incident.

    My FD is a career department of 41 personnel. We have 1300 to 1500 calls per year, no EMS. Usually have 12 to 15 working fires, 10 to 12 MV extrications, and about 10 haz-mat calls (not counting oil spills and minor gas leaks) per year.

    Default Fire/MVA

    Structure Fire: Engine, Rescue, 2nd Engine, Tanker comes out of our house.

    MVA's: Medic, Rescue, and we have a grass-rig that we basically have converted into a rescue as well. It has 250 gallons of water w/ foam, air bags, cribbing, etc....jaws are kept on our medic unit due to personnel levels at awkward times of the day...sometimes we may only get enough to roll a medic unit at first. We also use the mini-pumper for car fires as first due rather than an engine.
