      I'd be interested to know that.

      Oh, and by the way. When did this forum adopt the "You don't ask those kinds of questions, you're a newbie" attitude. Really? Oh I better listen to that guy, he has a lot of posts in here. C'mon.

        It's rare for us be out of service for anything. I've left man a hoseman at a minor medical call to avoid abandonment & wait for the ambulance while two guys and the engine respond to a second run. So, we're definitely not going OOS for a service call.

        Anytime my company does work, it's a run. Why? Lots of reasons. Like Len, it covers the guys in case of injury. Also, it's necessary to paint a picture of the work the FD does for the community. It's nothing for 5-6% of our annual runs to be lift assists and other miscellaneous service calls. Some folks say those aren't "real" incidents. Wrong. They're all times when the city's investment in equipment and manpower were put to use to benefit the citizens. You don't want to keep that a secret.

        I can't speak for the larger cities... But the cops is most smaller cities and towns seem to record EVERYTHING as an incident -- including those drive-bys to investigate barking dog complaints. We should do no different. If the personnel or equipment go to work, it should be recorded and tracked so it can be shared with the citizens & elected officials. This is one of those areas where firefighters can be their own worst enemy because they keep everything they do a secret.
