Trying to have as realistic a setup as possible, but struggling with finding how fire officers are distributed. I'm guessing normally they'd just ride the main fire engine and not go in a separate vehicle.
How have others distributed them? 1-2 per station or do they tend to be located only at main stations? I'm currently set up in Dorset so it's D&W fire.
Thanks in advance
With DWFRS we have Flexi Duty Officers are our main officer response. We'll typically have our Station Managers respond from station, so yeah as the rest of the guys said placing them at the larger (mainly wholetime/day crewed stations) are actually pretty realistic. As for the retained stations, they usually respond from home. Because I have no idea where they live I just put them at the station with a delay to simulate that.
The larger stations, Salisbury, Devizes, Swindon, Stratton, Weymouth, Westbourne etc will typically have a group/area manager assigned.
