At least 11 firefighters and four paramedics are on duty daily, providing Advanced Life Support services and manning firefighting equipment. They are also trained to respond to medical, hazardous materials, technical above and below grade rescues, and vehicle extrication.
Fire prevention is emphasized through building inspections, construction reviews, public education programs, and the sale of smoke detectors and extinguishers.
