How does the Augusta Fire Department receive a call for assistance?

How is it decided who responds to calls?

I called an ambulance once; and a fire engine showed up. Why did that happen?

Do we always respond with red lights and sirens?

Does the ambulance always use the red lights and siren going to the hospital?

Does a Fire Engine respond to all car accidents?

I noticed that the fire truck and ambulance went through a red light, then after they got through - they shut them off. Why was that?

I called because my smoke detectors were going off. Why did I get a whole street full of fire trucks?

My alarm system went off & my alarm company called the fire department.  After I found that the call was false, I tried to cancel you but an engine company still showed up.  Why was that?

How do I get a permit to burn brush? Are there any rules to burning?
