West View Fire Department
West View Fire Department    My local volunteer fire department!
I volunteer at Station 30 which houses a ladder truck and an air/light unit. Our primary responsiblity is roof work, ventilation, and search and rescue. We also assist the engines from Station 10 and Station 20 when needed.
As one of the only ladder trucks in the area, we get called quite often to assist Ross Township, Avalon, and Bellevue.
