A positive industry trend. Strong work.

We use squads to absorb lift assists and non emergent BLS calls. 2 man. The problem is, they get dispatched and as the dispatcher gets more info, the call turns ALS and the ladder we are trying to reduce calls on, gets launched. Our Squads run 15-22 calls per shift. Fire calls only at discretion of Batt Chief. We are evaluating taking one out and adding an engine next to the ladder. Unfortunately we are in the same boat as everyone. Trying to hire has been difficult at best while call volume has gone up more than 20% year over year. We will keep striving for the perfect setup. If any of you find it, let us know. Good job Fresno. A step in the right direction.

That's the great Fresno Fire Department, Fresno's Finest.

Ooo Baby Squads:) They're so CUTE!! All that aside, i can see their usefulness and practical (ness / ability IDK)

😇🙏🏻❤️

Squads have been around for a long time. Think of the TV show Emergency!

Nice!!

As firefighters, we understand the dangers of our job. However, recent studies have shown all three layers of turnout gear contain PFAS chemicals linked to cancer, the leading cause of firefighter deaths. Thank you to our IAFF leadership @iaffpresident @iaffgstlima for sounding the alarm and to @nbcnightlynews @lesterholtnbc @tomcostellonbc #IAFF #extinguishcancer 🚒 ... See MoreSee Less
