Myths


Myth: Firefighters only respond to fires, and they have a limited work load.

Fact: The fire department makes thousands of responses every year. If you pick up the phone and call 911, you will most likely see a firefighter. Firefighters respond to a lot of different types of incidents, including: all types of fires, medical emergencies including chest pain, cardiac arrest, seizures, falls, overdoses, shootings, stabbings and auto accidents. They also respond to hazardous materials spills, chemical odors, gas leaks, and electrical lines down, water emergencies, system alarms on homes or businesses, and citizens who have fallen and cannot get up. When a responding agency is not clearly defined, the fire department is dispatched.
