    I think we ran about 180,000 last year with over 2000 firemen. Many companies run 12-20/tour. Some more, some less. I think it's about 400 total for the day. There's 4 platoons.

          Just over 2000 calls last year, combined fire and EMS. All volunteer department with about 75 members. We are on track to do more than that this year.

              I think the fire department ran about 280 last year while our town's first aid squad was probably up to about 1,500 runs.

                50k per year divided amongst 20 engines, 5 tower ladders, and 12 ALS ambulances. My engine averages about 2200 a year, and our medic is right there along with it.

                At the volly house, we're doing 600/year.

                        This always interests me when you see companies doing more than 4,000 runs a year. When do you send fire companies to EMS calls? Is it for everything or for higher priority calls?

                          Most of our engines are about 35% or so EMS, very few are right around 50%. We are supposed to only go on high priority EMS calls....doesnt work out like that usually.
