Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service incident response

The information provided here is based on the 9-1-1 caller's reporting of events. As incidents unfold, the nature of the incident or location may change as crews receive more information or arrive on scene. For example, a person may report a suspected fire, but when crews arrive, they determine there is no fire or risk of fire. This type of call would still get categorized as a fire. It may be helpful to consider how many crews are on scene and how long they are on scene when you review this data.

The Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service (WFPS) responds to more than 100,000 calls for service each year in Winnipeg. All calls since 2015 can be located on the City of Winnipeg's Open Data portal.
