Why are Firefighters at the market?
Firefighters work  24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year and need to be available at a moments notice. They shop everyday for food and supplies, with their own money, because they eat their meals at the station. Since Firefighters never know when they will receive an emergency call for service they always have to be close to their apparatus. This prevents any unnecessary delays in responding to the emergency needs of the citizens.
