Is the department full time or volunteer?  What about response time?

The department is a community-based, volunteer organization. Volunteers must live in the fire district boundaries, reducing the response time.  Volunteers who are retired often respond to calls during other's standard work hours. Among our responding volunteers are fire fighters and EMT's who are employed by larger districts and work staggered shifts.  As a result, the number of responders and the time of response will vary by availability of the responders.


Does the department have additional resources?

DFPD participates in a mutual aid agreement with the surrounding departments. Based on the initial dispatch or on scene reports, the DFPD might put other districts on standby or request additional resources such as people, engines, brush trucks and/or tenders.
