09/22/13 32 W, 1 I - + 2 - 3 Garner Places Fifth Staffed Company in Service

From the Garner Fire Department's Twitter feed, they've placed their fifth staffed company in service today with Rescue 1:

Congratulations to Garner on getting another company in service! It is always great news to see any department increasing their service delivery capabilities.

I could be wrong, but isn’t Garner the only department besides Raleigh and Cary to have a staffed rescue? I know that several departments have cross-staffed units like we do at AFD, where the ladder crew swaps to the rescue as needed, and some also have engine/rescue combinations (AFD/RFD/KFD); I am talking about a dedicated rescue.

For those that may ask about staffing. It has a 3 person crew assigned to it (Capt, Lt and a FF), with minimum staffing being 2 people. This crew will also cross staff our ladder truck.

Thanks for the information Mike. Cross-staffing is better than no staffing!

I think Mo’ville has a staffed rescue now too…

Bob our guys will actually be doing the opposite of Apex. For the most part they will staff the rescue and then only swap to the ladder for certain incidents.

Wake Forest has a staffed ladder with 4 I believe.
