When there is only a small fire, why do so many fire engines respond?

The standard response to a residential structure fire includes 3 engine companies, one truck company, one paramedic unit and one Battalion Chief. If these units are not needed, they are released upon arrival. The main goal of the Orange County Fire Authority is to protect lives and property and this level of response is needed to accomplish this goal.
