About the Fire and Emergency Service:
The fire and emergency service reaches every community, covering urban, suburban and rural neighborhoods. The fire service is the only entity that is locally situated, staffed, trained and equipped to respond to all types of emergencies. The fire department responds to natural disasters, such as earthquakes, floods, tornadoes and hurricanes, as well as to man-made catastrophes, such as hazmat spills, arson and terrorism. As such, the fire and emergency service is a dynamic all-hazard, all-risk response entity.
