How many calls is your department running yearly?
Hey guys, another thread on here about challenges in the volunteer fire service face made me think of this question. Quite a few people mentioned that a big problem in their department is a lack of calls.
So I'd like to know- How many calls does your department get?
If your department runs medical please break it down in the following format-
I'll go first
Fires/MVAs/etc- 100 or less

Rounding up or down for good measure:
Medicals - 275 (first responder only, no transport)
Everything else - 300
Medicals - 31,000
Everything else - 10,000

I'm on two departments. One is 3.9 miles from my house; the other 6 blocks from my office. Neither runs any EMS. (Thank God)

We run 140-170 per year with around 30 EMS (assists; we don't transport). Roughly 15-20 structure fires, 40-50 MVC's, and quite a few helicopter landings.“I am more than just a serious basketball fan. I am a life-long addict. I was addicted from birth, in fact, because I was born in Kentucky.”

Think we are currently sitting at 298. No EMS, that is handled by separate agency and they average about 1500 runs a year."This thread is being closed as it is off-topic and not related to the fire industry." - Isn't that what the Off Duty forum was for?
