How much does a fire department know about a horse farm?

Does your fire department know anything about your prop- erty other than the address?. If a fire starts, you and your helpers will hopefully be there to evacuate the horses while the fire department is enroute or just arriving at the scene. But, what is you aren’t at the scene? What if your neighbors or the firefighters are there before you?  Would they know what to expect and what their “job” should be?
