The Wheat Ridge Fire Protection District responded to 327 calls for service with an average response time for priority one calls of 4 minutes and 01 seconds. The following is a breakdown of the calls that your firefighters responded to in April.
Additional information: for the month, the District responded to 96.8% of all Priority 1 and Priority 2 calls in under 6 minutes. In comparison to our EMS contract with Rural Metro (RM), RM is required to maintain a 90% fractal for Priority 1 ans Priority 2 calls. For Priority 1 calls, RM has 6 minutes to respond. For Priority 2 calls, RM has 10 minutes to respond. Fractal means RM must respond to 90% of all Priority 1 calls (lights and sirens) within six minutes and respond to all Priority 2 calls (no lights and sirens) within ten minutes.
