Wetumpka is a combination dept, the chief is full time then we are paid on call. We run about 500 calls a year mostly being all fire related and we only run medical when the local ambulance is not around. We have 4 stations and also have swiftwater rescue for the coosa river which host about 10,000 canoers and kayakers a year and has class 3 rapids most all the time.

Station 1 is in downtown and has 3 trucks and 3 boats and the same mule as EVFD

Just added new brush truck. We were also given the approval to hire 10 part time firefighters, it will be 2 firefighters per shift and one extra per shift in case someone calls out and then my job as captain is another part time position. I will be in charge of them as well as administrative duties. The positions will be M-F 8a-5p. Most will be off duty Montgomery or Pratville firefighters.

Here in the South it is different, we don't have roosters with 100 people and protect small territories, we have 20k+ in 75 square miles. Most of our firefighters work in other cities, and most of the ones that work in district cannot leave work, so during the day it may be the retirees and the off duty paid from other cities but they are not always around now we will have at least the first truck staffed.

Yes we are fortnate. We have a 250k in city budget and we get county money which is 250k a year. In our county you pay $50 per household and $100 per business, and the county knows how many you have in your district and pays your quartely. And the county money can only be spent on equipment, training, but no salaries. E1 will be replaced in 2013 and we hope to pay in cash.

When you replace E1, I can think of a couple fire departments up here that would love a crack at it... lol. Nice equipment, especially for a department that only runs about 100 calls a year more than mine. Wish our city had that kind of budget.
