How many calls for emergency service do you get each year?

In 2018, we received over 2500 calls, but with multiple trucks having to respond to emergencies, we had over 3600 unit responses.

With the explosive growth the Harrisburg area has seen throughout the past few years, Harrisburg Fire Department's call volume has steadily increased. We are expecting to exceed over 2500 calls this year
