    According to our County dispatch, about 300, of course, they consider a sparking outlet or smoking appliance to be a "structure" fire.

    We run 6-12 room and contents or better. Sometimes it is higher.
    The above is MY OPINION only and not that of anyone else. I am not representing any organization in making a post here!!!!

    As far as how many Structure Fires one gets a year I have to say -Not to be Smart - But Who Cares. ~ Why should something as horrible as someone losing their house, belongings, and worse yet lives be such a great thing to us as Firefighters ? Yeah we all love to respond to calls [I know I'm one of the biggest "Whackers" you'll ever meet - Flashing Lights on the Car and all that] But seriously think about it. I'd rather be 1/2 way to the fire-hall and hear that "Structure Fire" is either out or has been down-graded. I love the Volunteer Fire Service and I'm very active with in it but I get enough satisfaction knowing that we're ready to respond, hoping we don't have to, and if we do knowing we'll do the job we're trained to do.

    We normally run 1 or 2 working structure fires per year. This year we have run 6 between our first and second due areas.

    Wonder what happened this year ?
