SPOFR EMERGENCY CALL VOLUME HIGHER IN 2021
By Lt John C. Nicholas, SPOFR PIO

This past year was incredibly busy for us in the South Pend Oreille Fire and Rescue (SPOFR). We responded to 946 calls in 2021 which averaged out to 2.6 calls per day. This was our busiest year on record with an increase of 46% over 2020 which up to now had been our most active year with 647 responses. Our first responders were dealing with more than one call at a time for 22% of the time during 2021. As with most other fire districts, medical calls comprised the highest percentage (66%) of our responses, for which we transported 82 patients via ambulance to various hospitals in the region. Structure and wildland fires comprised 14% of our total number of responses. Approximately the same percentage of calls were for general citizen assistance (e.g., lift-assist or good-intention) calls for help. Our most profound appreciation goes out to the men and women of SPOFR who give so much of their time and take such pride in their outstanding service to the community. We project that the numbers of calls for 2022 will most likely increase over what we experienced last year. This makes it much more critical that we add a few new recruits to our roster of first responders. If interested, please call us at (509) 447-5305, stop by our Diamond Lake Station, or visit our website Firefighter Application page for more information.
