    Highlights from what I know of would have been a few mutual aid calls for barn fires,warehouses. Few structural fires and the usual crap. Just got our old utility truck back after a refurb. Looks quite slick with all new LED Lighting,Brand new looking box and a brand new chassis. Other than that. Same old s**t
    If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

          Aggressive does not have to equal stupid.

            786 calls, who is that for exactly? the dept. or one particular company? did the fire duty pick up as well. Hopefully it did, when you start running more its nice catch a few more fires along with the 'non-fire emergencies'.
            Sorry about the delay....

            It's going good. We (my Lt's, advisors, and I) are changing ALOT of things, and it has been alot of work, but so far it is paying off.

            786 is for our entire department, not just one truck. We also do not count runs as 5 trucks on 1 MVA=5 calls....here it is one call no matter how many trucks respond.

            Our fire calls dropped from 140 to 136, but we had alot more "real fires" this year than in years past. A huge decline in BS automatic alarms, smell of smoke, etc. During one 3-4 week stretch we had like 1-2 real fires a week, it was pretty unheard of in recent memory. EMS calls went up from 564-650.

              Thanks, but not likely...he's a real nut job. My tactic has been to ignore him, as most people in our parish don't take him seriously, and I'd rather not dignify his inane babble with a response. I guess eventually he will find someone else to pick on and life will return to normal

                We acquired 8 new First Responder certifications (myself included) which helps us out considerably. I haven't heard what the final call count was yet, but I am guessing in the neighborhood of around 150 for the department.

                And we were told by the PIAL that we need a new station, so for 2007 we are working on the tax for that, along with 2 new pumpers, a new tanker, and 2 new brush trucks.

                And we had 30 sets of bunker gear donated to us by a local industrial company.......we looked like kids at Christmas!!!

                  Very nice, quality not quantity. Good luck in '07.
