Best Answer

Depends on what you mean my "combat". The USAF stations fire support vehicles at every base. These vehicles are in combat zones, but no one is riding them down the streets of Baghdad. Fire support vehicles are considered non-combat vehicles. But like everything else, people can shoot at them.

What types of trucks do they have at a fire station?

Various types of fire trucks, which will vary by department and what kind of environment they operate in. A more rural fire department might have trucks with internal water storage, whereas an urban fire department can rely on the availability of fire hydrants. A city fire department would be more prone to having hook-and-ladder trucks in order to reach tall buildings, whereas this wouldn't be as much of an issue for a more rural fire department. Brush trucks would be more commonplace in a rural or small town fire department, what these are will also be dependent on the fire department and what they deal with. For a fire department which might deal with vacant lot fires, but not major forest fires, it may simply be a modified 4x4 pickup, whereas other departments may use demilitarised tactical trucks and tracked vehicles. Some departments will have ambulances as their stations, since EMS is normally part of Fire and Rescue for that town, city, or county.

The reason is because dalmations weren't afraid of the horses that the fire "trucks" back then used. Also they would bark so people would get out of the way.

The fire fighters felt bad so they carried on the tradtion even if the dogs didn't help.
