Merging Citizen Dashboard with Open Hamilton

The Citizen Dashboard is being converted into an Open Data format, linking the Citizen Dashboard with Open Hamilton. During this conversion, the data on the Citizen Dashboard will not be updated quarterly, resulting in some data being out of date. The conversion is expected to be completed in September 2019.

Story behind the numbers

In 2017, the Hamilton Fire Department responded to over 31,000 incidents. In each case, this response provided a valued service to the public.

Performance improvements

These numbers are generated by calls for assistance. Continued fire prevention activities and public education can contribute to a reduction in some types of responses.
