What is the FAST team? I read the short description above but wonder if anybody can explain it better? Perhaps Patch could put up a list of all the fire station numbers. Thanks

A fast team is dispatched to all confirmed working structural fires. It's sole purpose is to rescue and assist any firefighters who may become trapped or disoriented inside the fire. While the rest of the firefighters focus on suppressing the fire and rescuing trapped occupants the fast team focuses solely on firefighter safety. Also in Toms River there are six fire companies, Toms River Co. #1 Station 25, Toms River Co. #2 Station 26, Ocean Beach FC Station 27, East Dover FC Station 28, Silverton FC Station 29, and Pleasant Plains FC Station 30.
