    Crankshaft;

    Thats just good marketing!!!
    You call them both and hopefully they will return the favor. Activity is good for moral.
    And if its mutual aid usually not as much paper work.

    Well, we don't have this dilemma here fortunately. However, i think we all know what the obvious RIGHT choice is. I just don't want to have to be the one to make it.

    Lets say you need a 110' stick.
    Lets say there is 1) 5 Miles away and 1) 8 Miles away. The one 8 Miles away has the better reputaion on and off the fireground. The one 8 Miles away has a reputation for a good training program and better roof and ladder ops, who do you call?


    Lets say you need a pumper and manpower 1) 5 Miles away they have small turnouts & questionable response times" The other 8 miles away, good skills and good training, very reliable, who do you call.


    To add a little extra suppose the one 8 miles away had to pass by the 5 mile away's station. Would that alter your decision?

    Only when we require something that the further away department provides that the closer one doesn't, such as RIT.

    Depends on what the need is. Do you need man power or a 110 ft stick. Do you need ALS instead of BLS? Do you need tankers or pumpers?

    started a topic Closer or Quality

    Closer or Quality

    I saw this on the other website and thought I would ask it here.

    When calling mutual aid, How many feel it is nescessary to call the closest department?

    Have you ever thought of going to a department a little further away to get better qualified / trained FF's or more modernized and up to date equipment instead of calling the closest?

    My thoughts... Unless its a huge difference (Many Minutes) go with the quality!!!
