The Seymour Fire Department answered 62 calls during the first six months of 2021.
That's the official word from Seymour Fire Chief Shawn Crump, who provided the information to the Seymour Board of Aldermen at last Thursday night's regular meeting after the data was requested at the city's June 10 meeting by South Ward Alderman Nadine Crisp.
City Administrator Hillary Gintz shared Crump's report with the board, which detailed city fire calls from Jan. 1 through June 17.
Of the 62 calls, more than half of them, 32 to be exact, were for rescue and emergency medical service.
Second in terms of volume were fire calls at 15, followed by "good-intent" calls at seven. Other calls included hazardous condition (no fire) at five, service calls at two, while there was one false call.
Crump's information was provided to the city on a detailed chart.
Gintz said that per the fire chief, this information will be shared with the aldermen quarterly — every three months.
