Does anyone know of a place or places that keep statistics on fire service mayday calls? For instance, the number each year, what types of structures, etc. I am doing some research for a training program.
NIOSH and NFA/ USFA are the sites that come to mind, however just because a MAYDAY is called, doesn't mean that every call is recorded.
I guess the information which can be obtained from such sites show that a MAYDAY has occurred in all types of structures and during different events. Does it really matter the number called each year and the types of structures? In the end the final issue would be to know how to call a MAYDAY and how to mitigate vs statistics, just my opinion.
