Calgary’s Fire Department is experiencing unprecedented and unplanned increases in service expectations as first responders to an increasing number of physical and mental health related distress calls.
In just the last year we’ve seen:
- 54% more overdose-related responses
- 38% increase in critical medical interventions like traumatic injuries and heart attacks
- a 47% increase in fires across Calgary
