Volunteer firefighters respond 24/7

Email

When a 911 call comes in, an electrician, a cook, a carpenter, a plumber, a parts manager, two excavators and a handful of city employees rush to the fire station.

Their average response time is 4 minutes, getting from their day jobs to the fire hall. There they suit up while backing the trucks out of the garage. Will they need a ladder truck, a pumper or a tanker? They make a split second decision and race to a fire. They're there within minutes - most of the time.
