The Fast Response Squad (FRS) carries a two person fire crew, rather than the traditional four person crew. It has a complement of tools, equipment and supplies. It carries a small quantity of water and foam, but does not have the capability to hook up to a hydrant.

The FRS is staged at under-deployed areas where it can respond more quickly than the nearest fire engine and begin patient treatment or fire suppression.
