    Mutual Aid to NJ BOX 8039

    If units are supposed to stage before responding on mutual aid, like at the foot of a bridge or tunnel, it would make sense to use the box location of the staging location. Marine units sometimes embark other units, so using Marine 9's home box, for example, will send those units to their quarters.

    LA County Fire Station destroyed by fire

    LA County Fire Station destroyed by fire

    When fire stations are opened, response times will improve. When fire stations are closed, "response times are not impacted." Must be magic. Were all of the nearby LA City units unavailable? None seen on the video.

    If you don't have any agreement beforehand, you cannot expect, guaranty, or even know what you'll get, if anything at all.
