The department also handles calls such as pumping water out of basements, home renovation inspections, medical transport and tank removal. The total number of calls to the department typically exceeds 2,000 a year, according to Fire Chief Gerald Bessette. Among the firefighting and rescue equipment are two engines, a ladder truck, three rescue vehicles and two boats for marine rescues. Six-member platoons staff four shifts to provide around-the-clock protection. EMTs are trained at the cardiac level with additional certifications.
