Under the direction of company officers, firefighters work as part of a team to perform rescue, fire extinguishment, ventilation, salvage, overhaul, extrication and medical-aid services during emergency calls. They have a thorough working knowledge of all tools and equipment in use by the Fire Department and a strong familiarity with the fire district. Firefighters participate in required training sessions and share in the general care and maintenance of the station. They must abide by the policy and procedures of the Department and be willing to work in hazardous conditions.
