How many firefighters are on duty at one time?

The Department has one crew of three firefighters on-duty at all times. Sometimes, if one of our Reserve or Resident Firefighters is fulfilling shift time requirements, we will have four firefighters on-duty. One thing to keep in mind is that the Fire Department does not currently have the ability to staff stand-by crews. This means that the only guaranteed staff for the entire county is the on-duty crew of three (sometimes four) firefighters.
