May 6, 2022

For the month of April there were 37 fire dispatches, which was a decrease of 6 (-13.9%) calls compared to April 2021 (43 calls). EMS handled 284 medical emergencies, which was an increase of 52 (22.5%) medical emergencies compared to April 2021 (232).

Through the first four months of 2022 we are averaging 41 fire dispatches and 259.6 medical emergencies per month.

Fire dispatches includes: fire alarms, auto accidents, house/commercial fires, gas leaks, vehicle fires, EMS assists, odor/smoke investigations, and rescues.

During the month of April we held 4 training nights. Our trainings are held on Wednesday nights. They start at 7:00pm and end anywhere between 9:00pm-9:30pm. Each training night our volunteer members practiced and trained on different skills. These skills included vehicle rescue operations.

We continue to thank the community for their support and are always looking for new volunteer members to help us serve the Downingtown community.
