Fire Services Review

As organizations progress into the future, change is inevitable for municipal services. The fire service in particular is changing rapidly from the traditional ways of service delivery to more non-traditional innovative ways of delivering the service in a fiscally responsible manner.

In today's world, local governments are challenged with strong demands to reduce costs and increase value added services. The demand on fire service delivery is increasing as population, demographic diversity and development increase. The Campbell River Fire Department's role in public service extends beyond fire suppression to include an inspection program legislated  through the Fire Services Act, first medical response, vehicle rescue, hazardous materials response, technical high angle rope rescue, confined space rescue, fire & life safety public education, fire investigation, emergency and disaster management, and fire dispatch services.

Long term planning is a key element in achieving an effective balance of service delivery and costs for the services provided to the community. Recognizing that the City of Campbell River has yet to adopt a fire services plan, the fire department established a Strategic Planning Committee and embarked on a comprehensive and collaborative process to complete a Fire Services Review to evaluate how the fire department is meeting the current and future needs of the community. 

The information and data collected by the Strategic Planning Committee was formulated into strategic issues, goals and action plans with recommendations and options to move the organization into the future.
