  • How much does your dept spend per call?

    Following the thread on "How much does your dept's budget cost each citizen?" Let's see how economical everyone is. How much does a response in your jurisdiction cost?

    I used the whole budget/the total number of requests for service and got $945 per call. Wow, for $945 you can get two engines and a ladder with a minimum of 8 FF; a Paramedic unit and an Engine with 6 FF/Medics; or two Medic units and two engines with 10 FF/Medics (if they're all there that day.)

    How much does your FD cost per run?

      Based on the Department's budget of $4.875 million and 5800 incidents and 1140 inspections, the total comes to an average of $702.44 per incident/inspection. Of course, the costs vary as to the type of call, number of apparatus, personnel etc. The Department took in $39,000 in inspection fees.

            We are a Volunteer fire department. Cost is around $550.00 per run. Several years ago we had a large wildfire that lasted 4 days and cost us 17 brand new tires for brush trucks and food for a lot of meals.
