Special Operations

Fire suppression and rescue is the primary mission of the fire service, but not all rescue efforts entail putting out fires. For this reason, the fire service created special operations teams. Special operations teams are comprised of highly trained members with advanced skills. These firefighters have been trained to respond to high-risk but low-frequency events. Such events include any operation other than basic fire suppression that requires specialized training.
