[quote]I'm not sure what your point is, then. Like the number of fires, I'm guessing that fire fatalities over time have plummeted as well. Nothing I see anywhere would necessitate us having an all-time high number of firemen. [/quote] Population increase will obviously increase # of firemen :dun...

I can find a book written by a scientist literally about modern fires being more dangerous and when I go back to work, on work computer, send as many links as you wanna see. What data are you referring to? I already said fir...

There is pretty big differences between volunteer depts and professional fire depts. Just b/c you kno...

Many depts even run the am...
