This is an interesting arrangement. Plymouth is surrounded by Plymouth Township so the former arrangement with them made perfect sense. Northville is five miles from Plymouth and some calls could be ten miles. Will the response time be adequate? They are attempting to solve the problem with logistical sophistication. The lesser used aerial and pumper will be stored in Old Village closer to Northville and could be deployed after initial contact with the fire scene.

I hope they cut corners by eliminating all the duplicate response to ambulance runs. When one person is hurt, they don't need to send three ambulances. I saw three respond to a woman short of breath at the library during the summer. As is typical, Plymouth FR went home and HVA took the person and revenue.
