What determines what fire engines and rescue squad will respond to each call? When a rescue call comes in for a site on the west side of the river, the squad from the west side station will respond, the east side squad will respond on the east side. If a fire call comes in, all fire equipment responds from both sides of the City. If we are responding to a vehicle accident, a fire engine will respond along with the rescue squad just in case tools are needed to extricate (to free or remove) someone from a vehicle.

What happens if a call comes in for the west side of the City and the vehicles are already in operation for another call?If our emergency vehicles are already being utilized for a call on the same side of the river when another call comes in, we will send out emergency vehicles from the station that has other vehicles available. If all our vehicles are being utilized and an emergency call comes in, we have excellent communication with our surrounding communities such as the Villages of Allouez and Ashwaubenon, who are always willing to help us out in an emergency. We are also there to help them out when the need arises.
