TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Over the last 24 hours, Toledo fire fighters have responded to about 170 calls!
At least five of those were working fires. It's a trend fire officials say they're getting ready to see more of. They say as soon as temperatures outside heat up, the number of calls tends to rise, as well.
"It's really hard to predict," said Lt. Matt Hertzfeld of Toledo Fire and Rescue. "Unfortunately, the business we're in, we can only react sometimes."
But reacting to all those calls can be a lot, especially with recent temperatures.
"When you're putting on 60-70 pounds of equipment, it really makes a tough job even harder in the heat," Hertzfeld said.
So the department is doing everything they can to get ready for an increased number of calls. Their number one priority is to keep everyone safe.
"The crews will be rotated on a shorter basis through a working fire scene, or any kind of extended scene," the lieutenant said. "You can try to look ahead and make sure there is plenty of ice cold water on the rigs."
He also said local fire departments work together and help each other when the number of calls outweighs the resources.
So although they may not be able to predict exactly when the calls will come in, the department knows they'll be ready for them.
