The department has long-standing commitment and history of providing a rapid response time throughout the entire 33 square mile service area. Because fire can grow exponentially in a matter of minutes and time is the most crucial factor in patient survival during medical emergencies, the department strives to arrive on scene as quickly as possible with appropriately trained and equipped personnel.
