Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

How many working structural fires do you respond to in a given year? Don't count food-on-the-stoves if it only smokes up a house or apt. Actual fire where a line is pulled. Honest replies only!

I looked in the log and this is what ours where. We are a single pumper house we run 4/1/1/1 on working fires pumpers, trucks, rescues, chiefs. Ours are broke down to first due and the all others and again this is just our house for the year to date. 1st due 24, all others 49 and that's for all three shifts(our district borders city limits on 2 sides and we do not run MA). And we classify it as a worker if a line was pulled and active fire. We have 10 houses run about 15,600 calls and total workers last year was 161 for the whole city. Population 120,000
