I am fortunate to be a member of a large department. We have:

14 Tankers
Over 300 Personnel

2 Boats (Again, maybe more)

Federal Urban Search & Rescue Team

Bike Team (for our local trails)
Hazardous Materials Team

I am not sure on the total number of calls for all stations. I know our busiest station alone had over 3,000 calls last year.

Because of our size I have not been to every station. These numbers maybe slightly low. You can check out our website at www.bcfdmo.com.
