Why does the Fire Department bring a fire engine on an inspection?
The fire engine is a firefighter's office away from the station; it holds the tools required to handle a wide variety of emergencies. If a needed tool were not available on the scene of an emergency, firefighters would need to return to one of Midland’s three fire stations prior to taking action.

Engine companies conduct fire inspections in their respective response districts. This allows them to respond to emergency calls in a time-efficient manner without having to return to the station for the necessary apparatus or equipment.
