  • Frequently asked questions

    Question: Why do I see firetrucks driving lights and sirens and then turn them off and keep driving?

    AnswerThis can occur for several reasons, but commonly it's because another firetruck has already arrived at the emergency scene and has determined they don't need any more help.  This is when you may see other companies turning off their lights and returning to their station. 

    Question: What should I do when I see a firetruck driving with its lights and sirens?

    Answer: The drivers of all emergency vehicles, fire, police, and ems, all appreciate it when motorists pull to the RIGHT side of the road and come to a stop until the emergency vehicles passes safely in either direction.

    Question: I see the fire truck and Firefighters all over town and I don't always see a fire, what are they doing?

    Answer: This could mean many things such as responding to another type of emergency like a medical or a rescue. The crew may also be doing its annual fire prevention inspections of commercial buildings or apartments in the area, annual hydrant flushing, or they may  be getting supplies for the station. While the crew is on shift for 24 hours they will run errands and other duties with the fire truck in case they are needed for an emergency response they're always ready.  They may also be doing some training, public education or local show and tells.

    Question: How many members does Fargo Firefighters Local 642 have?

    Answer: L-642 has a 100% Member rate and represents Fargo Firefighters, FF/Specialists, Captains, and Inspectors.

    Question:  Do you sleep and eat at the station?

    Answer: Yes, once a crew comes on shift in the morning, they are on duty for 24 hours.  The crew is responsible for shopping and cooking their own meals and will spend the night at the station.
