Cheyenne Fire Rescue Releases 2019 Annual Report

CFR

Cheyenne Fire Rescue has an 8.6 percent increase in calls for service in 2019 compared to 2018, according to the 2019 Cheyenne Fire Rescue Annual report released today

In 2018, Cheyenne Fire Rescue firefighters went out on 8,642 calls for service and that number jumped to 9,384 in 2019.

“It was another busy year for Cheyenne Firefighters,” said Greg Hoggatt, Chief of Cheyenne Fire Rescue. “As we see more calls coming in, we are seeing more stress placed on our apparatus and fire stations which means we need to be planning for the future now.”

Report highlights:

Responded to 6,840 emergency medical service calls

Responded to 144 fires

Conducted 1,013 inspections

Reviewed 477 building plans

Completed more than 14,325 hours in fire emergency and medical services emergency training

“As we receive more calls for service, we need to start looking at finding financial mechanisms that can help us replace worn and outdated fire stations like Station 5 on Dell Range Boulevard and Station 3 on Cleveland Avenue,” Chief Hoggatt said. “We are also seeing a number of our fire apparatus reaching end of serviceable life.”

I’m proud of the men and women of Cheyenne Fire Rescue and that they provide this community with excellent fire protection, and emergency medical care every day of the week. Our goals could not be accomplished with the support of Mayor Marian Orr and the Cheyenne City Council, said Hoggatt.
