The 3 alarm fire brought units at each level as volunteers reported to the station to assist staffing. Our career staff responded with Tower 1 on the initial alarm, while Ambulance 18 and 19 continued to serve the community on medical calls. Volunteers reported and responded with Canteen 1 on the second alarm and Engine 11 on the 3rd alarm. Chief 1-1 also responded and had a division assignment. Since there are so many pictures shared and copied, it is difficult to give credit to everyone, so we will say thank you to all who documented the incident. Also thank you to all Volunteer and DFRS personnel who collaboratively worked together to bring the fire undercontrol.
