Strategic Planning – Regional Provision of Joint Municipal Fire Suppression

Rather than providing an example of collaboration, this article highlights the efforts of four communities that are seeking to collaborate on joint municipal delivery of regional fire services. Any suggestions you can provide them will be appreciated.

There are four communities east of Regina which are seeking advice and input on creation of joint municipal delivery of regional fire services.  Moving beyond the mutual aid agreements, these communities are looking to share capacity.  They are looking for areas which have considered or implemented this type of structure in the past.  And they are also seeking out a consultant to assist with developing the organizational structure and financing models.

Upcoming Collaboration Opportunity – Emergency Services / Emergency Management

There are always opportunities to collaborate within ones emergency management and business continuity program to continuously improve the program, but there is an opportunity coming up in April for collaboration on a national scope which I believe requires special mention. It is the “Emergency Services Management” in Canada conference and the potential PTSC-Online has to facilitate collaboration following the conference.
