I have had 3 runs in one day. I' on a vol department and I left my house at 4 o clock in the morning and returned at 10 o clock that night going from sturcture fir to sturcture fire. How many have you had and long were they?
Most in one day has been 19, several years back during an ice storm. Our department is also a volunteer dept. The longest run I've been on straight was 38 hours, was a company that manufactured plastic pipes.
I had 36 one day (ice storm, with fires) when I worked Engine 4, they lasted anywhere from 15 minutes to over an hour. I now work on a busier engine, we quit often have 15 to 20 although our daily average is 11. The least I have had in the last 6 years on Engine 3 was yesterday, we had 6. I have had a few days with 23, 25 or 27 somewhere in that area.
