SEE HOW RAPID
First potential major fire call at 7:16 PM which was an apartment unit in a multi family structure, apartment complex.
In 4 minutes the first fire engine was on the scene, and within 1 minute the situation was summed up and units put back in service.
Two minutes later a fire alarm at the Houston County Jail. A multi person structure fire alarm where peopel are confined. Within three minutes of dispatched fire engines were on the scene, the situation summed up and units returned to service.
So a matter of 10 minutes reports and response of two potential major fire possibilities. And in 10 minutes the call was received, dispatched, fire engines on the scene, situation summed up and fire units back in service.
That is what you call CLICKING ON ALL CYLINDERS from the 911 Center to the fireman.
