The primary responsibility of the fire department is to extinguish fires. Firefighting is full of risk. We will take the most risk when we know there is a person to save. In an effort to lessen the risk we equip ourselves with the tools needed to get the job done. Our Fire Engines hold the equipment we need and are able to pump water to our fire attack lines in sufficient quantity to put the fire out and to keep our crews relatively safe while doing it.
