Ray - Thank you for this interesting summary of odd jobs. Looks like serious MVAs, gas/fuel incidents, collapses, medical incidents and water emergencies. 33 incidents - looks like they may increase with wormer weather.

Subway/train/plane/boat incidents are probably another "Beyond the Fires" category and account for a lot of unusual runs that usually don't show up on our site unless serious. Many other medicals, MVAs, floods, odors (gas or smoke), investigations, elevators are unusual, difficult or lengthy.

Thanks again, Ray

Thanks for this post. The job has always been more than putting out fires, we all have many if not more stories of non fife incidents than fires.

Thank you Ray.
