    Default Call Volume vs. Size

    I was just curious as to how many calls you guys run and how big your district is. I work in an area about 9 square miles and we run around 5000-5500 calls a year.

    Default Call Volume

    Entire department area is about 12 square miles. Daytime population is approx 43,000 while evening pop. drops to about 32,000. 5 Stations, 5 engine co.'s 2 truck companies, and 1 Rescue company. 24/72 schedule. Call breakdown is like this:

    Engine Co. #1 - Fire: 1752, EMS: 438, Total: 2190
    Engine Co. #2 - Fire: 2482, EMS: 1022, Total: 3504
    Engine Co. #3 - Fire: 2153, EMS: 693, Total: 2846
    Engine Co. #4 - Fire: 1496, EMS: 448, Total: 1944
    Engine Co. #5 - Fire: 2774, EMS: 1138, Total: 3912

    Truck Co. #1 - Fire: 2646, EMS: 219, Total: 2865
    Truck Co. #2 - Fire: 2956, EMS: 361, Total: 3317

    Rescue Co. #1 - Fire: 2883, EMS: 109, Total: 2992

    Battalion Chief #1 - Fire: 1679, EMS: 438, Total: 2117

    As you can see, mostly Fire. Only dispatched on what they call "Immediate Life Danger" EMS runs. The Truck and Rescue Co.'s are only dispatched if all the Engine companies are tied up. EMS transport is run by a seperate municiple EMS agency. Thanks and stay safe.

    Staffing includes the officers ( Captains and LT's)
    Deputy Chiefs are not counted as part of minimum staffing.

    Would that be "Fahll Rivah" or "New Beffah"?

    Hey Fireslayer, don't take this wrong, but how does your dept define a working fire? 320 seems like a big number for an agency with only 85k population and only 9000 runs a year total, especially in the NW. We do just about 100 workers a year with close to 200k population and over 25000 calls.
