Asking Fire & EMS Chiefs the Right Questions
Recorded On: 07/20/2022
Here are a few: How does your department compare with others whose workloads are about 80 to 85 percent EMS and 5 to 10 percent fire? What differences can a workload and operation analysis make on how you pay for those fire services? Do you really need that many firefighters and that much equipment? How do you determine the staffing and deployment of your fire services staff?
