Fire Department Run Statistics

Fire HQ w Address

During the past 30 years, the Fire Department has shown an increase in emergency response requests. From 1978 to 2000, the total incident responses have increased by over 447%. A large part of the increase was due to the department implementing a Medical First Responder program. The program allows us to respond to medical emergencies as well as fire related emergencies.

* Not all runs and incidents are shown below, that is why total for the year may be different from incidents listed. "Sub-Incidents" with the most reports have been included.
