West Bend might not be a large thriving metropolis city like Milwaukee, but the city’s fire department is kept busy with various types of emergency calls every day. The department has issued their monthly report and it shows crews responded to 336 calls in March, compared to 316 in February. Of the 336 calls on record, 241 of them were considered emergency medical calls, compared to 211 in February. The next highest amount of recordable calls was interfacility transports with 48. That’s down ten from February. After that, the numbers for calls were 16 false alarms, 10 service calls, nine paramedic intercepts, seven hazardous conditions, three actual fires and two special incidents. West Bend Fire Chief Jerry Kudek says people don’t realize the amount of calls the West Bend Fire Department handles on both a daily and yearly basis. The department has responded to 990 calls so far this year, compared to 909 in 2013.
