Structure fires which require alarms beyond the 1st alarm assignment are referred to as 'Multiple Alarm' fires.
Each subsequent alarm receives 2 additional engine companies and an
additional ladder company for each alarm.
We have also included some non-fire photos. These photos while not as visually dramatic are indicative of the many other functions performed by the YFD.
One photo shows the resourcefulness of a elderly women who needs a pail of water. She can't retrieve it from her household faucet because firefighting efforts on her block have dropped the domestic water pressure.
All of these photos are copyrighted and cannot be used without the consent of the photographer.
