ESCI has completed numerous public safety, police, fire, and EMS studies utilizing our highly qualified staff. ESCI has a working knowledge and understanding of contemporary fire, EMS, and police organizations and the complexity of current delivery systems, as well as our ability to utilize advanced analytical technology and methodology to ensure accurate observations and recommendations.
Effectively managing a ﬁre, EMS, or a law enforcement agency presents complex challenges, not the least of which is conducting your business in a way that represents the needs and expectations of your community while being efﬁcient and cost-effective.
Your department can beneﬁt from a third-party evaluation in many areas, including a review of current operations and service delivery, a complete stafﬁng analysis, and the feasibility of shared service delivery through merger or consolidation.
Choosing the right planning tools for your department depends on your needs, your community’s conditions, and your current and expected growth. Different types of planning tools are often confused with one another, and the terminology used to describe them often differs from place to place. Every ﬁre, EMS, and law enforcement agency, large or small, should use a strategic planning process, resulting in a three to ﬁve-year “road map” for the organization. A Master Plan is a high-level, long-range plan that is particularly important for communities experiencing growth.
Today’s emphasis on recruiting ﬁre/rescue personnel who best represent the community they serve is based on a demand from the public that their public safety department meets their diverse needs. Knowing this, ESCI has developed recruitment and entry-level testing programs that attract and employ progressive, smart, and diverse applicants. We help departments retain and cultivate these employees through all ranks using innovative and effective promotional systems, including written exams, assessment centers, accomplishment records, and other highly customized tools developed from industry-leading texts.
It is essential that your ﬁre department is deploying effective resources in a manner that aligns with community risk, has measured response performance, and is cost-effective.
A Community Risk Assessment – Standards of Cover is focused on resource deployment – ﬁre stations, apparatus, and people, that match the community needs.
