  • What is your departments typical response?

    I was just wondering what your departments typical response to a structure fire?

    Our is as follows:
    Monday-Friday, 6am-6pm
    (all companies)
    5 Engines 2 Ladders 2 Squad (Heavy Rescue's)
    All Other times:
    2 Engines 1 Ladder 1 Squad (Heavy Rescue
    For a working structure fire:
    Whatever command needs Command gets, i.e. mutual aid, add'l engine, add'l ladder, add'l heavy rescue and so on..

      Shuswap VFD responds with 2 engines, 2 tenders, 1 support and if enough manpower our reserve engine. We can call on 3 other departments for mutual aid if needed.

                1ST Alarm - Bay Ridge Fire
                3 Engines
                1 Rescue
                1 Tanker
                1 Ambulance (Bay Ridge EMS)

                Multiple Alarm -
                1. FAST Team from Queensbury Central
                2. Our fire district is made up of different zones with a mutual aid plan for each zone, which the county communications center has on file. When requesting multiple alarms, the IC only needs to request for that specific zone. Ex. - "Bay Ridge Command to fire control...dispatch a 2ND and 3RD alarm assignment for Zone 4 to my location."
