slide8.pngThe Amador Fire Protection District, or AFPD, has released its latest statistics for June of 2008. The AFPD responded to a total of 178 incidents last month. 103 of these were medical aid related and 21 were vehicle accidents, a total which combined accounted for 69 percent of the incidents. As is typical yet surprising to many who are unaware of the types of incident calls the Fire District receives, only 19 of the incidents were fire related. Of these, there were 5 structure fires, 1 cooking fire, 1 generator fire, 1 chimney fire, 2 vehicle fires and 9 wild land fires. 56 percent of the total calls occurred between the hours of 8:00 am and 5:00 pm.
