2021 Fire Services Master Fire Plan
The 2021 Fire Services Master Plan provides forty-five (45) short, medium and long term recommendations that will guide Fire Services for the next ten (10) year period. This fire services master plan is an all-encompassing strategic look at the immediate (0-1 year) short term (1-3 year), medium term (4-6 year) and long-term (7 – 10 year) and ongoing priorities relating to equipment, response, resources, staffing and station locations.. The plan measures today’s abilities against approved community planning,
future population figures and community sprawl both horizontally in future development
and vertically in the City core.
Recommendations include a staffing level increase of 20 suppression firefighters was a recommendation of the 2016 plan. As stated in this report, Council approved 4 of the 20 staff and those staff have been recruited. The 2021 plan also recommends these additional firefighters.
The City’s 2022 Operating Budget will contain a staff request for the 16 remaining firefighters for Council’s consideration and a 5 year phased in funding model not impacting the 2022 tax rate.
