2022 1st Quarter Call Volume by Type

January 1st through March 31st we ran a total of 102 calls which is on average, very high for our department. February, being a short month, was the highest call volume (40) we have had in one month in over a year. The pie graph below shows the breakdown of the types of calls we had during the first quarter. Some of the types of fires are self explanatory such as series 100-Fire. However, to help explain what some of these are, the following examples of what type of call falls into these different series.

Series 200 calls are Explosions/Ruptures, which we have not had any.
Series 300 are all motor vehicle accidents we respond to as well as any call we go to assist EMS with. We do not respond to “medical calls” unless specifically requested for lift assist or a cardiac arrest.
Series 500 are calls such as tree down in roadway, debris in roadway, child locked in car, etc.
Series 600 are calls that we are dispatched to that we get canceled before we get there.
Series 700 are false alarms which are usually smoke detectors going off by accident or malfunctioning.
