They also gather other vital information specific to occupancies, so in case of an emergency they can better perform their duties.
The department also provides for specialized rescues called Technical Rescues. This additional training consists of Vehicle Extrication, Ice and Water Rescues, Hazardous Materials, Confined Space Rescues, Trench Rescues, Rope Rescues, and Building Collapse Rescues.
The department is constantly reviewing and purchasing new and improved equipment in an effort to advance the safety and delivery of its services.
