    man if i posted all my calls i would run out of room. We have WAY TOO many calls to be able to remember all them. As of July, 1st we had 212 calls already. WE get around 400 calls or so ia year. So in the 4 months ive been in the dept, ive gone on oer 50 calls or so.

    LOL...... Thats funny stuff...

    Hopefully you'll do a bit of reasearch my little friend and figure out that there are depts that would run your *** into the ground with the number of calls they get
    If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

    "Just" six runs a day?

    The vollie company I run with, usually averages about 1 call per day. Lately it's up to 3 or 4. It DOES seem like alot when the numbers get to be double or more.

    My volunteer department sometimes has such long dry spells we start hoping something will happen.Not that we want someone to get hurt or burned out but we do like to show what we really can do.
