About this creation
I was doing a lot of thinking over the week and thought "My department has 3 stations in 5 mile wide town with 5000 people, is it realistic to have a paid department?". I figured the town is just like my home town with the same amount of fire stations and trucks. So yeah, FDLC is now volunteer. I might change the name too, Lego City sounds to plain and boring.

And the firetruck is what Engine 5 will be based off.

LFM: Thanks for the info. You're right about more members, my town has 11 trucks and 99 firefighters! My town is so small and just like my Lego town, we get few calls but also so no need in having guys just sit around the station for days without calls. Christian: Thanks, Dallas FD is probably one of my favorite departments because of there trucks. Those Spart Crimson Gladiators with Chevron bumpers look so cool.

About 98 percent of communities with a population of 5000 and under are volunteer. With a population that small it is cost prohibitive to have a career department, even if they run EMS and you can subsidize the budget with insurance payments for ambulance transports. Also, going volunteer may actually get you more firefighters. Most small career departments have only a small group on each shift. This usually is inadequate for structural firefighting. A good volunteer department can get you as many or more firefighters, even during the daytime during the week, when most volly departments have the least members available to answer alarms.
