  Jefferson County Fire and Ambulance   
  Jefferson County has just returned to the former fire/EMS numbering system.  
   
         NUMBERNG SYSTEM EXPLANATION:  Example: You hear "Fourty-Three Nine One"  
   
  a)   The first number, the 43 in this case, is the department/agency the unit is from. Looking at the list below, you'll see 43 is Thousand Islands Rescue (TIERS).  
  b)   The next number, 9 in the example,  stands for  the vehicle type (see below); 9 is an ambulance  
  c)   The next number, the 1 here, stands for the vehicle number from that department/agency. If the department/agency had another ambulance it would be  
              '43-9-2'  which would stand TIERS second ambulance.  
   
  "10-10"  Confirmed working fire  
  "10-9" means there is no fire or that it is out.
