The Dalton Fire Department currently has thirty-four members, twenty-two of whom are certified emergency medical technicians. All members are trained in the use of semi-automatic de-fibrillators, as well as CPR, haz-mat and many other topics.
Garaged in the Fire Station on Flansburg Avenue are three fire engines. The rescue truck and ambulance are owned and operated by the Fireman's Association, which is made up of members of the department. The costs of operating those vehicles are paid for by donations, a town-wide subscription drive, and by fees charged insurance companies for transporting patients to hospitals.
Burn Permits: see subsection at left.
Dumpster Permits: must be obtained from Fire Station prior to placing any dumpster over 6 yards on property. Cost: $25
