The Philadelphia Fire Department (PFD) provides fire protection and emergency medical services to the city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States. The Philadelphia Fire Department is one of the oldest established fire departments in the United States and traces its origins back to early volunteer companies, specifically the Union Fire Company, established on December 7, 1736. After 134 years, the City Council decided the growing city needed a professional, organized fire department and passed an ordinance in December 1870, creating the paid fire department.
The Philadelphia Fire Department is the largest fire department in the state of Pennsylvania and, like most large city fire departments throughout the country, also provides emergency medical services to the city. The PFD currently has one of the busiest fire department EMS Divisions in the United States, responding to over 341,745 medical-related runs in 2013 alone. Also, the Philadelphia Fire Department has historically operated some of the busiest ambulances in the country. In 2013, one department Medic Ambulance, Medic 2, responded to 8,788 medical-related emergency calls.
In 2013, the Philadelphia Fire Department responded to 437,329 emergency calls, with 95,584 being fire and rescue-related and 341,745 being emergency medical-related.
