This especially helped us in parts of Alkol and the Little Horse Creek areas of Julian. • Reducing Response time by distributing equipment between stations • Reducing response time in daytime when manpower is limited by reducing travel time to station to get a truck • Attracting New Members-We have gained 4 new members since the station began operation. All are Fire Fighter level 1 trained and are under 30 years of age. • Potential to gain recognition for Duval, Danville and Alum Creek VFD’s as ISO mutual Aid companies and vise versa.
