Frequently Asked Questions

What do firefighters do when they are not on calls fighting fires?

Training takes up a great deal of firefighters' time when they are not at an emergency. Firefighters also participate in fire safety inspections and public education programs to teach citizens about fire prevention and life safety and drive the community to become familiar with the area to reduce response time during incidents. Firefighters must also check and maintain their equipment and clean and maintain their stations.
