FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- In 2017, the fire department received more than 20 thousand calls, over 90 thousand hours of training, and installed over 600 smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors in Fort Wayne. While they have great numbers, they hope to do even more this year.
"Know that in less than four minutes, you will have the highest level of care possible to you as soon as those people arrive," says Fire Chief Eric Lahey.
The next firefighter recruit class will begin in March with 21 recruits.
