    Cool And.................

    Glenn Dale Maryland, 1 Station

    2 Engines
    1 Heavy Rescue
    1 Tower Ladder
    1 Brush Unit
    1 ALS Ambulance
    1 BLS Ambulance

    7,378 Runs

    This is about 2,100 less than 2002, largely due to changes in Dispatch Protocols. For instance, We now handle Automatic alarms with a single station instead of two. The wettest year on record also meant only a very few Grass/Brush/Woods fires.

    183 calls for the year. This is up from 171 for year 2002.

    No changes in the coverage area, but we did run a few more mutual aid calls from the previous year.

    Thank you.

    Well, now that 2003 has come and gone it's about time we heard how everyone's year went. How many calls did your stations do? My station did 6731(we just count the calls. we don't count for each truck going on the call). I was surprised, it didn't feel that busy. I must be getting used to it.
    I wonder how many of those were to Continental Towers

    D Shift came for a visit this morning to the West Tower for burnt toast I believe. Oh yeah, my friend Bettie (the West tower cleaner) wants her wooden door stop back that she propped the front entrance open with so the firefighters could get in and one of them took it on their way out!! HAHAHA

    Another call to the West Tower yesterday was for burnt cooking.

    Then C Shift came for a visit tonight to my tower (East) along with more than a few big wigs and a bunch of firefighters and trucks, couple of District Chiefs, couple of cops, more cops blocked 9 AV off down the road, there was even a TV cameraman. Lots of smoke from a pot on the stove. Yup, we made the 11pm news on A Channel 3rd top story (after two murders the past two days) and I have a horrible feeling I was in a couple of the shots leaning on the railing. S**T!

    Freaking dumbasses galore live here!

    THANKS AGAIN TO THE C SHIFT GUYS THAT WERE HERE TONIGHT!

    Default Runs for 2003

    Guess we're just little guys, only had 120 runs in 03.

    Majority of them were grass fires.

    No way, Brother. Some of the best are slow, some of the worst are busy.

    I bet you could show my crew a thing or two about fighting grass fires.

    Full-time dept: 3600+ divided over four stations. That's first responding EVERY ems call. Kinda sucks

    Part-time dept: 4500+ counting EMS. Engine only about 1500, but what I would consider an above average number of structure fires. Average about 15 per month.

    The entire department here ran about 92,000 alarms. Don't have an exact breakdown on ems/fire numbers, but we do about 30% fire. We run 39 Engine Companies, 17 Ladder Companies. My individual house the engine ran 3200 runs and the ladder did just over 2000. If I get better information I will pass it on here. No bls ambulance's here, so we are all band-aid boys you could say.

    If you are little guys, I guess we are miniscule. Town population of 1500. Total runs 22. We don't run medical call. We saw a jump in MVA's

    Default Our Year runs from April 1st...

    ...through March 31st. As of this post we are at 866 alarms for 2003-04. Obviously the breakdown isn't done yet but we usually run about 60-65% EMS calls (including MVAs), 35-40% everything else (Fires, Automatic alarms, public assists, mutual aid etc.) One Station, all volunteer, population around 13,000-some suburban but mostly rural, approximately 120 square mile coverage area including a major interstate with a really f*&%#d up on/offramp.
