Fire Department Responses
In addition to responding to calls for fires and medical emergencies, the department also inspects fire alarm and suppression systems, ensures buildings comply with fire and life safety codes, and investigates fires. The department closely monitors the calls coming in so the City can appropriately staff the department and provide the best services possible to the community.
Emergency Incident Responses
Responses include all calls for service, whether a medical emergency, a fire response, or a non-fire emergency. We monitor these metrics to see if there are specific times of day or year when resources are more impacted. It is important to understand peak call load and when resources are most limited.
With the exception of 2010, there has generally been a slight increase in total responses every fiscal year.
