    FDNY Again Busiest Department, But Ohio Departments Take Busiest Station and Squad Honors in Annual Run Survey

    With nearly 1.4 million total calls, the Fire Department of New York once again topped the list as the Busiest Fire Department in the nation in the annual Firehouse Magazine Run Survey of paid and combination departments.

    The survey, available in the June and July issues of Firehouse, lists profiles for hundreds of the top fire departments in the United States and Canada, and ranks the busiest departments and units. In August, Part III of the survey in the magazine will include department pay and staffing rankings. The Volunteer Run Survey will be available in the October issue.

    This is the 21st year of the annual run survey. A total of 278 departments took part in this year's survey, representing departments from 49 states, the District of Columbia and eight Canadian provinces. The departments represented in the latest survey protect 82,628,157 people, and they have 133,425 members and budgets totaling more than $10 billion.

    They provide this service with 4,324 engine companies, 1,506 ladder companies, 1,952 ambulances and numerous other specialized units. They responded to 1,833,760 fire calls, 6,620,094 EMS calls and 9,885,578 total responses last year.

    In second place for total call volume was Los Angeles City, Calif. with more than 1 million less responses than FDNY. Washington, D.C., Houston and Los Angeles County rounded out the Top five. Ottawa, Ontario was the busiest Canadian department, with 35,339 responses.

    The busiest engine company in the nation in 2001 was San Francisco's Engine 1, with 7,457 responses. Washington, D.C. Engine 10 placed second at 6,518, and Prince George's County, Md.'s Kentland was third with 6,269 calls. Mississaugua, Ontario's P101 was the busiest Canadian engine with 2,929 responses.

    Miami-Dade County's SQ2 took tops as busiest aerial ladder, with 5,069 runs. Chicago Truck 3, Rochester, NY Q/M-6, FDNY's Ladder 4 and Boston Ladder 26 all had over 4,000 responses in 2001. Again, Mississauugua, Ontario took tops in that nation with R111 responding to 1,788 calls.

    Toledo, Ohio's Squad 1 can claim busiest heavy rescue in the country, according to the survey, with 4,529 responses, edging Brockton, Mass by less than a hundred runs. Units from Cleveland, Orlando and Columbus, Ohio rounded out the top five.

    Boston, Mass. HazMat 2 was the busiest hazardous materials response unit in the U.S. last year, responding to 2,526 emergencies.

    On the EMS side, Nashville Medic 12 was the busiest in the nation with an astounding 9,125 calls for service, more than 1,300 more responses that the second place unit, Las Vegas' Rescue 1. The Laurel Rescue Squad in Prince George's County, Md. placed third, with just over 7,000 responses. Baltimore City Medic 1 and Chicago's Ambulance 10 completed the top spots.

    FDNY's Battalion Chief 9 kept busy with 5,335 responses in 2001, followed by Arlington, Texas Battalion 3B, with 4,968. Denver's Chief 2 with 4,953, and Columbus, Ohio Battalion Chief 1 with 4,182 calls as the only chiefs with over 3,000 responses in 2001.

    And finally, Columbus, Ohio's Station 2, whose six units responded to 20,528 calls last year, topped the list as the busiest fire station in America. San Francisco's Station 1 was second busiest with 19,939 runs and Las Vegas Station 1 third with 19,125 responses.
