Fire and Rescue Study
The Frederick County Fire Rescue Department is largely motivated to evaluate the current response model and the desire to develop a long range, risk-based, data driven staffing and deployment plan based upon the specific and unique profile of Frederick County. Comprehensive data based quantitative and geospatial analyses were utilized to objectively evaluate
the historical county demand for services by type and severity.
This comprehensive report consists of an executive summary report, a standards of response coverage and community risk assessment report, a comprehensive data report, and a detailed GIS report. The Department leadership staff has reviewed and approved the data and GIS reports as part of an iterative process. Therefore, all alternatives and recommendations are grounded in the data analysis and best practices insulating the process from potential biases.
