dover DE and other large cities around the country have all volunteer fire departments.
when the alarm is sounded all race to the fire house get the equipment and put out the fire.
with an all volunteer department dover can afford the very best equipment and a great track record putting out fires and saving lives.
but Dover is far more enlightened than is Detroit and the population of Dover really care about the city.
no paper trash on the streets, no abandoned homes etc a very different world than Detroit.
citizens are involved in Dover.

Police officers and fire fighters SHOULD NEVER be paid a salary lower than politicians. Relying on the kindness from volunteers is not a substantial means of certainty. Paying them is assuring the job get done as one day, volunteering may diminish as we discover being taken advantage of by political power.
Government officials are grossly overpaid and need to, not only reduce their salaries, but cut back on ridiculous spending for offices assistance and other less needed personnel.

Liar liar pants on fire.
Orr said there would be no further cuts in police and fire salaries. Both have taken prior cuts. They knew this was coming and delayed it until after chief Craig could take command. They thought it would go down easier. I predict Craig will continue the parade of chiefs who prove either ineffective and/or lecherous.
Godbee, Evans, Barney Fife, Cummings
Chief James Barren was an honorable man so Bing had to let him go.
