Why might I see fire trucks parked in lots around town (not during an emergency)?
Crew members are on duty for 24 hours at a time, and we need to eat! We all eat out together for breakfast, lunch and dinner to maintain crew integrity; if one person goes, we all go. Taking the truck with us ensures that if we get a call, we are ready to respond from that location, rather than needing to stop by the station to pick up the additional members of the on-duty crew.
