you need to know that? Is this really something to be commenting on.

1. They have so many fire Department because, the 10 Fire Departments each bring, 2-6 Firefighters, totalling anywhere from 20 to 40 Firefighters.

2. There are a variety of different types of fire eqipment ( Fire Engine, Tanker, Rescue, Ladder Truck). I am sure some of the department brought a certian type of Fire Equipment

3. When you get out in the middle of no where, water resources are very limited, so they have additonal Fire Engines, Tankers respond with extra Water.

4. If you don't like any of these answers contact the Buchannan Valley Fire Department, you might learn a thing or 2 about the Volunteer Departments in the County.
