Fire & EMS

  • Department personnel in Wexford County start with 21 and work forward. with the Chief being 01.
    • For example, 2-01 would be the Buckley Fire Chief and 2-21 would be the next highest ranking officer.
  • The Truck numbering is as follows: 02 being your lead pumper, followed by 03 and so on.
    • The reason behind this is supposed to be so that you can follow the assumption that trucks with even numbers will be pumpers and trucks with odds will be just general tankers that may or may not be capable of pumping.
