Hey All...Just wanted to try something a little different...and yes, I may use the results for a paper that I am writting for a class.  I would like to know your coverage area.....Square miles....# of blocks...however you descibe the area that you are responsible for in Fire/EMS coverage.   I know this will vary greatly as does the number of calls responding to each year...For example....I am in a small rural Department 44 members...we average 1.4 calls per day over the course of the year.....our coverage area is 218 square miles....Thanks....stay safe...Keep the Faith...........Paul
