What's even more concerning for Sandusky and Perkins fire departments, however, is the sharp increase in emergency calls.
Collectively, fire calls soared 10 percent and ambulance runs jumped 5 percent in 2012 compared to 2011.
"As peoples' disposable income and income availability for medical and preventative care diminishes, typically the fire service will see an increase in runs," Sandusky fire Chief Paul Ricci said.
