BY THE NUMBERS: Clark County emergency responses in 2021

By Clark County Office of Emergency Management

In 2021 your fire departments from across Clark County responded to 1,764 incidents. These numbers were compiled by a combination of incidents entered into the sheriff’s office computer-aided dispatch system and some departments reporting systems.

The numbers are not 100 percent accurate, and some of these responses are duplicated; every department in the county has mutual aid with at least one other department. Also we had more vehicle accidents with someone entrapped than are reflected by these numbers, because the CAD system does not allow you to mark if there is someone trapped. The totals for each department are listed below by number of total calls.
