The most visible part of the fire department is the Emergency Response Division. This division is directed toward fire Suppression and Emergency Services, which include all of the personnel that respond to fire, medical emergency and other emergency calls throughout the city. Crews working 24-hour shifts are ready day and night to respond at a moment's notice. Five stations throughout the city ensure a quick response to any call for help.
In addition to emergency response, Burlington fire personnel can be seen any hour of the day:
cleaning and maintaining apparatus
giving station tours to school children or members of the community
