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