Fire Police Are Firefighters And Policemen.
The Alpha Fire Police serve an important role within the fire department. In effect, they act similar traditional policemen would when coming to the scene of an emergency. They risk their lives to provide traffic control and scene safety for the firefighters, and so much more.
Alpha Fire Police are volunteer members of the fire company who, based upon jurisdictional authority, receive sworn police powers and special training to support firefighting efforts at emergency incidents. They brave the harshest weather and put in long hours to ensure that emergency responders are kept safe. They are often the first on the scene, and the last to leave.
Alpha Fire Police Protect And Serve In So Many Ways.
Our Fire Police ensure that the scene of an incident remains safe for firefighters, emergency service workers, and members of the public by performing traffic and crowd control. They secure firefighting equipment at scenes and the three fire stations. Fire police are also exterior firefighters and may be called upon to perform these duties as necessary.
And finally, fire police assist local and state police with road closures, traffic control, crowd control, missing person searches, parade details, salvage, security, and other tasks as requested.
