Kyabram CFA volunteers Peter Ferguson, Mick Crompton and Mandy Roberts are hoping for a quieter 2014 after the branch attended 153 callouts last year.
Kyabram CFA volunteers contributed more than 3000 hours between them attending emergency callouts last year.
They responded to 153 calls in the year to December 31, 2013 compared to 140 in 2012.
CFA captain Mick Crompton said it was frustrating the latest figures continued to show an upward trend.
‘‘Our number of callouts has been going up by about 10 to 15 each year over the past three years,’’ Mr Crompton said.
