The Bozeman Fire Department responded to a record number of calls last year, while also working to increase training for firefighters, help improve the city’s insurance rating and plan for the future. That’s the message Chief Josh Waldo had for city commissioners while he presented the department’s 2017 annual report at Monday night’s City Commission meeting. According to the report, last year, the department responded to 4,696 incidents, ranging from medical calls and fires, to vehicle crashes and hazmat responses. That total was up nearly 9 percent from 2016 when the department responded to 4,316 incidents, and up a whopping 60 percent from the 2,936 incident responses in 2011.
