5. Is the department full time or volunteer?
    The department is a community-based, volunteer organization with employees. Volunteers must live in the fire district boundaries, reducing the response time. The station manager is a full-time employee. A salaried administrator responds to calls with fellow department volunteers. Volunteers who are retired often respond to calls during other's standard work hours. Among our responding volunteers are fire fighters and EMT's who are employed by larger districts and work staggered shifts. 

6. Does the department have additional resources?
     DFPD is a co-participant in a mutual aid agreement with the surrounding departments. Based on the initial dispatch or on scene reports, the DFPD might put other districts on standby or request additional resources such as people, engines, brush trucks and/or tenders
