Number of fire-related calls for service for each area of the City of Tampa

The City of Tampa is divided into 18 Communities. This chart shows the number of working fires that were responded to by TFR Engines and Trucks. By tracking these numbers it helps us determine the number of resources (Trucks, Engines and people) that need to be assigned in any one of our 18 locations. A working fire is defined as a fire that needs an external source of water such as a hydrant or fire engine tank and or a fire hose extended inside of structure to extinguish the fire.
