Cedar Springs Fire Chief Jerry Gross presented his end of the year report to the City of Cedar Springs, and the statistics show an increase in the number of calls they responded to, from 588 in 2008, to 614 in 2009.

The majority of the calls (433) were medical calls. House and building fires accounted for 28 of the calls, vehicle accidents another 28, and grass/rubbish fires 16. The rest were fire alarms and other miscellaneous calls.

Of the 614 calls, 472 were in the city, 90 were in Nelson Township (whom they are contracted to help service), 6 in Solon, 8 in Sand Lake, 16 in other areas, and 22 were voided.

The number of calls has increased steadily since 2002. Between 2000 and 2006, they averaged 465 per year.
