    General Notes: Data for more counties are typically available in years of the Census of Governments, such as 1997, 2002, and 2007. As a result, the median value is typically lower for those years due to the influx of smaller governments. Some data series from this source may also see an increase in counties in 2000, leading to a similar drop in the median value. *Median value gives the value for the "average" county for this metric, the 50th percentile of all counties reporting data. **This classification is applied to county government fire protection and prevention activities plus any ambulance, rescue, or other auxiliary services provided by the fire protection agency. Volunteer firefighters, if remunerated for their services on a "per fire" or some other basis, are included as part-time employees. The subcategory of firefighters shown in this report includes personnel trained and/or engaged in fire suppression and prevention. Employment, as used in this report, refers to all persons gainfully employed by and performing services for a county government. Employees include all persons paid for personal services performed, including persons paid from federally funded programs, paid elected officials, persons in a paid leave status, and persons paid on a per meeting, annual, semiannual, or quarterly basis.
