    Must be nice to actually see fire once in a while!! MY town averages a whopping 2 working structure fires every year. Although we do get quite a few vehicle fires. Basically EMS is the VAST majority of our runs. Every fire company in my town also runs a BLS rig. My company ran 850 calls last year 653 were either EMS or MVA's... the rest were either car fires, AFA's, or station coverage for our M/A towns... oh yeah, I almost forgot the 1 structure fire...HA!! But, being volunteer and being as I live in town, I'm pretty happy we don't have many more fires. Be safe all.

    OSW's do not include structure fires in buildings that are unoccupied. TL44 is in a heavy residental area. Some companies in Brooklyn see as many fires as TL44, however ,there are more vacant run down buildings in Brooklyn.
    Eng 298 ran 5148, Eng 96 worked 4328 and Eng 42 had 579 OSW's
    Lad 138 ran 4382, Lad 4 worked 3343 and Lad44 had 648 OSW's.
    note- numbers are our last published Runs&Workers (99)

    I have worked in many areas of this city (DC), and I can can tell you that you are most likely to go to a working fire in economically and socially depressed area. I think this is true of most cities. The more trash and vacant buildings you see lining the streets, the more likely it is that that area has a high call volume and and a high number of working icidents. Companies in downtown areas may run a lot of calls, but their ratio of runs/working fires ain't all that great.

    Let's face it, socio-economic standing is inversely proportional to working events. Wealthy people don't stab each other, ride bikes at night, heat homes with shabby little kerosene heaters. Their homes meet code and are well maintained. If you look at all of the names listed (PG 33, DC10, SF1, Boston Rescue 1, Richmond Quint5) none of them are in "well off" areas.

    I do have a problem with my fellow brothers bashing those who run medic locals. DC engines go on medic locals because of politics not by choice.

    Regardless of what calls we go on (sprained knee all the way to a working structure fire), we are serving our fellow man. Let us never forget that

    Our busiest station ,fire wise is our Central Staion, it is downtown in the oldest part of the city. But,if you are going by incident volume it would be Kents Pond, because Central doent have a Rescue, so it doesnt get as much medial runs

    The busiest engine and truck company in Prince George's County, Kentland (33), is in an economically depressed, highly populated area. A lot of their second and third due is the same too. Most of the busiest companies in this county are in those types of places.

    Your correct DC, Boston is not as active as they used to be, they used to run 10 to 12 fires a day on average, to day we run about 5 a day.

    I took the stats from the company, your correct, Rescue worked 721 Building fires, 14, Transport fires, That could be either ship, train, plane, or car, 221 other fires. Add them together you get 956 fires for the year.

    I have the company stats that i will e-mail anyone who wants them. Below is the code we use.

    bfd...give me a break Boston, an excellent FD, ain't doing the work like they used to(like most depts.) It's real difficult to tell who's doing the work anymore, occupied structural workers stats get inflated, AFA's schew things, a lot of areas have companies on top of each other, whatever.

    Sure, the dime gets a lot of hype but they get a job at least every 72 hrs. Yeah, a lot of nickel and dime but it sure beats smells and bells all night. On the other hand, after twenty med locals who give a f*&^ about a job.

    Thanks for the actual stats there, BFD. 950 building fires is a chunk. Is that "dispatched as building fires" or actual working fires? Either way, it's a lot!

    Richmond's busiest company (Quint 5) had just over 3000 runs - both fire and EMS. It's also our only platform.

    Lets see, total running, that would be E-33. I think they did about 4400 last year. They are in a mostly high rise district, and have lots of schools in there first due area.

    Busiest fire Company, That would be Rescue 2. 2200 plus calls, 950 building fires. That makes them the busiest running FIRE company in New England. Rescue 1 and ladder 23 had about 500 total fires each.

    Brockton squad A I seem to recall is the busiest running Squad in the Nation, but they do everything from Medicals, to outside fires, to central station alarms. I think they run about 25% of all the City of Brockton running.

    Rs-1 Alum....that wasn't meant to be a rip, if it sounded like that, my apologies....But since you brought it up- what's wrong?? Does the truth hurt??? Does it **** you off that while E10 is out tossing band-aids, somewhere else some other company is getting more WORK???? Hmmm should I twist the knife in your back some more and ask who is the busiest heavy squad in the US for actual WORK????

    I didn't get the impression ArmyTruck was directly slamming DCFD's Engine 10...the way I read it, he was just asking for the busiest firefighting company vs. who leaves the house the most.

    Could we perhaps not get our knickers in a twist over stupid things, folks?

    I haven't been reading the posts on PG county, and if that's the type of irrelevant "slamming" that's in them, I'm not missing anything.

    I wish the Forum folks would start up a "Pointless ****ing Match Page" and all the career/volly, EMS/non-EMS. E-One/Pierce, leather/rubber, and bunker/fatigue combatants could go duke it out there, and leave everyone else out of it...

    Army truck

    Nice rip on Engine 10. Did you have your feelings hurt there too like you did in Pg County? Actually it is more than 3000
    medicals. Maybe if you are lucky enough to get hired in Philly you'll be assingned to some company that runs a bunch of medicals like that. Of course "anyone can do it like you said.
