Why do so many fire trucks respond when I call the Fire Department?

Fire Department units are dispatched according to the information provided to the 911 emergency dispatcher. The Oradell Fire Department has developed response plans based on the resources that could be necessary for each type of event. Although not every resource is used on every alarm, the potential for use remains high. As a result, having the resource immediately available is an important factor in having a succesful outcome for any emergency event. The first arriving vehicle may be a command vehicle, an engine, or a ladder truck.
