No Morris County town has a completely paid dept. The ones with career staff are all combination depts.
Morristown has the largest staff followed by Morris Twp., Madison, Hanover Twp. Dist. 2 & 3, and Dover. Morristown, Dover and Madison staff their stations 24/7. Morris Twp has 2 stations 24/7, 3 stations daytime only. Hanover staffs both districts stations daytime only.
All are FMBA locals...43/243, 60, 70, 74, and 109.

For Morristown last i heard they only had 5 or 6 paid on a shift. I dont know for certain tho. But county dispatches 3 trucks out at a time during the day sometimes, so im assuming just 2 ride per truck on a call like that?

Morristown runs with 5 man minimum. 7 total per shift. 1 captain, 6 firefighters. There are 4 shifts and a Chief, Deputy, and Fire Marshal.

I dont understand how 5 per shift is even safe for Motown. Anyway, so what about the dispatch centers, how many are still independent. Mount Olive, and then a bunch on the other side of the county.

The database lists all agencies dispatched by the county. All others are independent.

I work in Parsippany (live down in Monmouth) and I assumed Parsippany had a paid staff on duty...is this not the case? Rainbow Lakes Fire Co. looks like an all-volly company, but what about the other houses in the disctrict?

Parsippany is divided into 6 fire districts. None are career. Fire Prevention is handled by the town with full time personnel.

Wow...with all the businesses, residents and highways around here, I would have though there would be a paid staff at one of their houses. Interesting...thanks.

Morristown airport? I have always been lead to believe it was run by the Morristown FD, as a separate station. I am guessing that's not the case?

No. Rural Metro staffs the ARFF apparatus. Morristown FD does respond and is in charge.
