Newbury Fire Department has 284 Calls in 2016

Newbury Fire Rescue had 284 calls for service during 2016, one more than 2015 and five less than the all-time record year of 2004. In December there were 40 calls, the second busiest month in our history, only four short of the record of 44 which occurred in July 2015. Being an on call department with no full time employees, months like this with more than one response per day does tax the resources of the department.

There were 99 emergency medical calls were the most frequent response and 35% of the runs. Vehicle incidents were the second highest category with 43 responses or 15% of the total, these calls also often require medical attention. The number of fires, which were mostly brush fires, was up 400% over 2015 because of the very dry conditions during most of the year.

This first chart shows the increase in activity for the Newbury Fire Department over the list 15 years. The last three years have all been just below 300 calls per year.The second chart shows the types of calls in 2016 tje third, responses by each of the NFD apparatus
