STATISTICS

The Emergency Services Department responds to much more than just fire. As a matter of fact, in the year 2002 (through June 30th), less than 7% of the calls they responded to were fire related. Fires types include structure fires, vehicle fires, vegetation and miscellaneous.

The type of call they respond to the most is Emergency Medical. Over half (67%) of all calls are for medical aid, motor vehicle accident response or rescue.

Hazardous Materials/Conditions make up a little over 3% of calls. A hazardous material is any product or chemical that if it were to leave its container would pose a threat to life, property or the environment. Hazardous materials/condition calls are those where the product has spilled or is threatening to spill. Examples are: chemical leaks, flammable liquid or gas leaks such as gasoline, propane, acids, etc. A hazardous condition could also include anything that poses a life hazard that does not fit into a category like fire, rescue, medical aid, etc. An example would be a large tree that is threatening to fall or power lines that have fallen down.

Service calls (anything related to safety or property conservation) count for 11%, False Alarms 12% and Natural Disasters and Special Incidents comprise nearly 1/2 of a percent. The total number of calls so far this year is 1167.

In 2001 the total number of calls was 2297. Of those, 71% were Emergency Medical, nearly 10% were False Alarm, 8% were Service Calls, 6.4% were Fire, 4% Hazardous Material/Condition and almost 1% were Natural Disaster or Special Incident.
