I called for an ambulance, why did a fire truck show up?

The Green Bay Metro Fire Department has trained staff available to respond to medical emergencies with the ambulance. Many times medical calls will require extra help. In addition to helping the ambulance crew many times the engine will arrive first and begin administering care.

Why do the firefighters take the fire truck on building inspections?

We cannot control when emergencies happen and need to be able to respond at all times. The inspectors are on duty firefighters who need to be available to respond to an emergency while doing an insepction. Extra time required to go back to the station to get the trucks and equipment is unacceptable for the people who called for help.

Do I need a permit for open burning in Bellevue?

Yes, open burning is prohibited and a permit can only be granted with the Fire Departments discretion. Open burning regulations can be found here Open Burning Ordinance

Am I allowed to have a campfire at home?

Yes, the fire pit regulations can be found here Fire Pit Ordinance

What do I do if an emergency vehicle is approaching with lights and sirens?

Please pull your vehicle to the right side of the road and stop. This will clear the lane and allow us to pass. If you are in a roundabout, please go through and clear the roundabout, then pull to the right and stop. Remember to look for other vehicles before moving to the right, as we do not want any injuries to result from our response.

Sometimes I see the firefighters getting food for lunch, where does the money for this come from?

The firefighters pool their money together and purchase meals for the day.
