WDEA's Chris Popper sat down with Ellsworth Fire Chief Richard Tupper and talked about the City of Ellsworth's staffing with career firefighters and on-call firefighters. The Chief explained what happens when a call comes in, and as the interview finished an actual call for service came in!

The Chief talked about the Learn Not to Burn Program, the number of trucks and apparatus in service and why it's necessary to have so many pieces of equipment. The Chief talked about mutual aid and welcomes citizens to come in and ask questions and tour the firehouse!
