Q&A: FW fire commission candidates share views/Question 3

Kerry Davis:

Over 70 percent of the calls the Fire Department answered in the past quarter were medical calls. Continuing to improve and develop Emergency Medical Services is a primary goal. Increasing community awareness of fire dangers in order to continue to decrease the number and severity of fires in the area is also important.

John Rickert:

The fire department is going to develop a new strategic plan in 2002.  This should be an ongoing process, which is revised and updated as things change and goals are met.  I would like to see the fire department equipped to transport patients to local hospitals.  I also would like to see better customer service, which includes more public involvement in setting the goals of the fire department.
