I have additionally provided within thisreport, comparative November data over the previous several years.

Thesecalls fell within the typical breakdown of incident type, and may be partly responsible for the transport fee increase foundwithin the data elements regarding transports, found later in the report. Emergency Responses Total Calls For Service November 2010 = 628 Total Calls For Service November 2009 = 551 Emergency Medical 76% Fires and Service/Good Hazards Fire Alarms Intent 3% 6% 15% Page 1
