Do you want to see what it is like to be a firefighter?  Often, residents wish it were possible for them to be at the scene of fire incidents to see exactly how the incident is handled. Others considering a career in firefighting and wish a preview of what such a career might be like.  Well, we can make it possible for you to “Ride-Along” with us.  Here is what you need to do before going on a “Ride-Along”:
