Across the United States many fire departments, paid and volunteer, have been experiencing a decline in fire calls and an increase in vehicle accidents and medical assist calls. According to NFPA in 2011 66% of fire departments responded to medical emergencies while only responding to actual fires 5% of the time. Many reasons attribute to the decline in fires, earlier call in times, better building and fire codes, more fire retardant building materials and more smoke detectors are being distributed than in previous years.
