Got a short story to tell.

So from the 1990s up till 2003. My dept was hanging around about 650 calls a year. In 2003, we saw a sudden jump to the 800s. The close of 2011 we broke the 1,000 call mark. We closed out just shy of 1,200 (1189) in 2012. None of us can believe it happened. We can't really put a finger on why. We haven't gained any territory, no large population growth. Well, I'll estimate there was about an 80-90 call increase for running auto to every call to help Prospect Fire, but still.

So our 10 year average number of calls has gone up 100% and we still maintain 4 paid staff (1 chief, 3 captains for 24/7 coverage), and about a 20 volunteer "roster."
