|The Elements of Davis|
Those who put it out work for the Fire Department or they are part of the volunteer Davis Fire Crew. We also look to the West Plainfield Fire Department and UC Davis Fire Department (including the Student Resident Firefighters) for handling fires. They all use equipment from their fire stations and the fire hydrants scattered throughout town.
Also responding to fire disasters, but not exclusively fighting fires, are the fine volunteers of the Community Emergency Response Team.
Fun events that occur that are related to fire fighting include the Fire Day on the Quad and the UC Davis Fire Department Pancake Breakfast. You can also catch fire twirlers downtown on warm Thursday nights.
Sometimes you can smell smoke from nearby fires; fire detection maps for the region are available here.
