Butler County operates with a northern and a southern task force. The reason for the task forces is to provide a way for an on scene department to get a multitude of firefighting assistance versus going through the process of asking for individual departments.
The northern task force met last evening. Trucks from each of the departments were brought to the meeting to discuss hose coupling congruency. Any one department in Butler County can fight even the biggest fire when multiple departments assist in the fire fight.
