Fire departments have huge responsibility for protecting people and properties from fires, floods, chemical spills, and accidents. Their primary aim is to provide firefighting services for a specific geographic area. Fire departments operate within a municipality, county, state, nation or districts. Depending on their size, a fire department can own at least one fire truck and one fire engine. Firetruck manufacturers supply them with various vehicles, such as squints, general rescue apparatus, aerial apparatus or wildland engines.
