The team at Canandaigua Emergency Squad responded to 477 calls during the month of September. Of those calls, 67 were related to falls—the most of any reason for dispatch. General illness was the next most frequent with 50, followed by trouble breathing (40), unconscious/fainting (29), and motor vehicle collisions (27).

For the first time this year, the age demographic requiring the most responses was not the oldest set. People between 40 and 69 made up 43% of calls, followed by people 70+ (39%), 20-39 (10%) and less than 20 (8%). Females made up 53% of the recipients of care.
