Why do so many fire apparatus respond to simple incidents?
Fire Department units are dispatched according to information received by the 911 operator. The Twinsburg Fire Department thinks pessimistically when they respond to citizens in need of help. In other words, the firefighters are prepared to deal with the worst that could happen. They are fast, well-trained, and pleasant in their response. The Fire Department's philosophy is to get our firefighters there as soon as possible. There may be 3 Fire Department vehicles on the scene for what appears to be a simple incident. However, in emergency services we have learned that if we assume something is simple, we can be horribly mistaken. Plus, we respond as fast as we can in order to prepare to encounter the worst. The winner in these situations will always be the citizen who needs help.
