Fire stations unable to keep up with demand in these Cincinnati neighborhoods

Cincinnati's largest neighborhood is also the one the Cincinnati Fire Department feels it's struggling the most to fully serve, CFD officials told Cincinnati city council members Tuesday morning. Westwood accounted for roughly 9% of all of Cincinnati fire department's incident runs in 2022, according to a presentation given to council by Interim Fire Chief Steven Breitfelder. Specifically, Westwood alone had 7,493 incident runs in 2022; CFD went on an estimated 83,167 runs city-wide.
