    1 Chief (full time)
    1 Asst Chief
    2 Capt (1-Fire/1-EMS)
    4 Lt's (2 Fire/2 EMS)
    28 firefighters (authorized strength of 35)

    Engine 790- 1984 Pierce Arrow 1250/750 Rescue/Engine
    Truck 791- 1978 Sutphen 85' ALS Tower Ladder 1250/300
    Special Ops 792- 1992 Ford/Wheeled Coach-Ice/Water Rescue Vehicle
    Medic 793- 2007 Ford/RoadRescue Medic Unit
    Engine 794- 1998 E-One/Freightliner ALS Engine 1250/700
    Safety 795- 1973 Chevy Safety Officers Vehicle
    Unit 796- 2002 Ford Expedition Chiefs Vehicle (used by Chief 200)
    Medic 798- 2001 Ford/Road Rescue Medic Unit

    We staff a medic unit with two every day of the year from 8-4. In times of really bad snowstorms or other weather conditions, we may man an engine and/or medic from 4pm-Midnight, then midnight to 8am as well.

    For fires and MVA's with injuries we have AutoAid coming from a neighboring dept. So during the day, we have a medic unit with 2 (and airpacks) and an Engine with 2 responding to a fire. Both would most likely be on scene within 5 minutes or so.


    Last year (734) was 50 calls down from the previous yr.

    My house is all volunteer in a Combination system county. We run:

    ENGINE 2:1996 Pierce Dash, 750 tank, 1250 pump

    WAGON 2: 2002 Pierce Dash, 750 tank, 1250 pump

    TRUCK 2: 1999 Pierce Dash Aerial 105' stick

    BRUSH 2: 1990 ford F350XL 250 tank, 250 pump

    Chief and the Asst. Chief run suburbans

    Duty Officer runs a 1997 ford Explorer

    We ran approx. 3,500 calls in 2006 and 3,000 calls in 2007. We dropped down becuase another Engine company went in service and took some of our runs.

    We are only dispatched on fire related runs with the exception of respiratory and cardiac arrest. However we will add on to any first due medical locals.

    You know Homeland Security has sent out several notices to the Emergency Services Sector warning about Fire Departments listing their capabilities and manpower on websites. Might be be a good idea to keep that in mind when you post here too especially when you a specific as to your location. You can never tell just who is sizing you up...........

    Well Homeland Security has also said that terrorists are bad guys. Maybe the news agencies should take their pictures off their websites, it could be considered promoting terrorism.


    COME ON PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!


    If (insert name here) the terrorist really wants to see what kind of apparatus, gear, and manpower we have, all he has to do is stop by the station and ask for a tour. I don't think that (insert terrorist organization name here) is going to be fooled or stumped by a simple problem such as not putting info on a website.


    And I know for a fact that last night at dinner their was a smoking hot blonde who was sizing me up.
