We use “firefighter” as a title for what we do in the Fire Department. What we should say is “every emergency response Department!” Our personnel are multi-talented and trained to respond to most any emergency from a fire, to an ambulance call, to a cat in a tree, to a hazardous materials spill, to a terrorist event, or just when someone doesn’t know what to do. Here is a list of what we may run into at any given time: Structure fires, Fire alarm, Ambulance request, Assist our citizens, Police Department or Public Works Department, Car accidents including extrication, train or plane accident, or assist at the airport. Respond to the tollways and expressways, Industrial accidents, Hazardous materials spills or releases, carbon monoxide responses, Technical rescues (high angle, slope rescue, flooding, confined space rescue, trench rescue, collapse rescue), Swiftwater rescue and water rescue, Fire investigations, Terrorism and Disaster response, and Assisting neighboring towns.
