All engines cover an approximately 1.5 mile driving distance (ISO) territory around their stations for single company responses. Basically E1 is the middle of Lima, E3 is north, E4 is west, E5 is east, and E6 is south.
First alarm response:
Effective June 1, 2010 the Lima Fire Department's minimum manning was reduced to 15. Also effective on that date, all apparatus responds to first alarm structure fires. The safety officer is now working 24 hour shift work as a firefighter and no longer responds as a safety officer.
During the M-F 0700-1530 times there are two fire inspectors (C13 and C14) who can also respond and perform support duties as needed by the IC. One of them is called in on third alarms, the other at fourth alarm.
The fire investigator (C17) works M-F 0700-1530 and investigates fires at the request of the IC. He gets called in quite frequently after hours.
The fire chief (C10) works M-F 0700-1530 and doesn't respond to fires until the third alarm.
