2013 Year End Statistics…


The Fire Department Training Network (FDTN) has just released its 2013 year-end fire statistics and we’re happy to say that we had more fires this year than last! In fact, fires at FDTN continue to rise. Like all communities, residential fires remain our bread-and-butter operation. However, 2013 showed a drastic increase in commercial building fires, including taxpayers and strip malls. While our nation’s fire service continues to move from suppression to science, replacing participation with observation, FDTN continues to operate using the time-tested principle that training firefighters by actually fighting fires provides direct and proven results. 

Here’s the breakdown:

Residential fires — 162   |   Commercial building fires — 78

Vehicle fires — 37   |   Outside trash fires — 32

309 Total Fires in 2013!

FDTN funding comes exclusively from its Individual and Department Memberships, along with any proceeds from courses. Become a member of the fire service's #1 training advocate, an organization that is truly devoted to the training needs of firefighters. Hope to see you on the FDTN fireground this year!
