    Dalton ECFR rarely responds to the plant and when they do they are staged off-site until needed.

    Dalton Love, the plant fire department probably has more training than the other fire departments do. They are thoroughly trained in all types of chemical fires and dangerous situations that arise. I’m sure it was wise for the ECFR to be on hand for safety to everyone, but do not underestimate the plant fire departments abilities.

    That’s funny, usually they respond and have to handle the emergency and the plant FD.
