When a fire company is in need of assistance for a call, they add mutual aid, surrounding companies that bring additional support. Mutual aid works both ways both given and received. So when one firefighter needs assistance, we all come to the call. If you can give our friend and other firefighters with ALS assistance, we will all appreciate it!
