                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."
