How many firefighters and rescue personnel are on duty each day?

WSFR has between 12-20 personnel on duty each day. Each first due Type 1 Rescue / Pumper has a minimum staffing of 3 Firefighter/EMTs, and may staff up to 4 personnel on these engines. We also staff our Advanced Life Support ambulance with a minimum of an EMT and Paramedic through a contract with Poudre Valley Hospital EMS. Additionally we have a Battalion Chief, Fire Marshal, Operations Chief, EMS Chief, Fire Chief, and support staff who respond if needed. We have a system in place to quickly recall career and volunteer members for large incidents requiring additional resources.
