Community Fire Protection

Fire Department Assessment Tool

The Fire Department Assessment Tool was created to provide communities with an efficient means to assess their fire department’s current capacity, identify any critical gaps, and determine resource needs. It is critical that municipal leaders understand their community’s fire protection needs while ensuring their fire department is compliant with the regulations, recognized standards, and industry best practices. 

It is recommended that this assessment tool be used by communities to maintain a regular system of inspection and evaluation of their fire service. Information gathered from the fire department assessment will help communities develop a detailed action plan towards a sustainable and desired Level of Service (LOS)

Please contact your Regional Assistant Fire Marshal for assistance with completing a fire department assessment, addressing any critical safety gaps, and developing an action plan towards meeting your community’s fire protection goals.
