Finding Your Department on the Fire Wire

June 27, 2011 Leave a comment

Thank you for visiting Twin Cities Fire Wire  —  we really appreciate the feedback and compliments from our visitors!

One question that comes to us quite often is “Do you have anything from the XYZ fire department?”

It’s pretty easy to locate any coverage of a specific department using the categories on the right hand side of the page, just below the Twitter feed.  Scroll down that list to find your department or other categories, such as dwelling or garage fires, technical rescues or roadway incidents. If you click on any of those categories, you’ll find anything related to that topic.

For example, if you click on Maple Grove Fire’s name, you get the following.

Thank you and stay safe!
