No, it's the Division Office. They coordinate all units in the Division, making sure they go in service, aren't spending too much time at a hospital, etc and they staff the speciality vehicles assigned to the division. They have more or less nothing to do with firefighters and they don't use off duty members to staff anything.

OK thank you for the response for going back to my original question so when an ambulance crew or somebody go and pick up one of these units and bring them with them to the incident

An RCC member responds with the unit, they are specially trained and will leave the office if needed.
