Washington Township Fire Department's annual statistics for fire and EMS calls for service and fire inspections.

Calls for Service

Total call volume increased by almost 10% from 2021 to 2022 and 21.8% since 2018. The call volume for 2020 was lower due to COVID-19 pandemic. 2022 was the Washington Township Fire Department's busiest year with a total of 7,252 runs. The WTFD expects the call volume to continue to increase as Dublin's population both increases and ages, and as planned business development projects are completed.
