The Engine Company
The fire engine is the workhorse of the fire department.  Not only does it carry water and hoses but also an array of tools and other equipment essential to the many tasks associated with firefighting and the various other services we get called upon to provide.

The Ladder Company
While most people envision fire engines when they think of the fire department, the ladder truck plays an important role as well.  The ladder truck provides a means of accessing locations out of reach of ground ladders as well as for an elevated water stream in the event of larger fires.  It also carries some equipment typically unable to be carried on a fire engine including a large selection of ground ladders and salvage equipment.

The Medic Company

Emergency Medical Services (EMS) accounts for the highest percentage of the fire department’s call volume (about 70%).  The modern ambulance (also called a “rescue squad”) is commonly likened to an ‘emergency room on wheels’ given the capability of it and its crew in terms of assessment and treatment in the field.  As paramedics, we are essentially an extension of the emergency room physician elevating the level of pre-hospital medical and trauma care the community receives.
