STANDARDS OF COVER

The Standard of Cover is a fire and EMS service industry benchmark used to assist us in ensuring an effective all-risk response. It measures risks within our community and compares them with our services as well as proposing modification to our services to provide more effective, efficient, safe and cost effective responses. It was adapted in 2017. Some of our response goals:

    Turn Out Time: 60 seconds

    Life Threats:   Advanced Life Support On Scene - 8 minutes, 90% of the time
    Transport Ambulance On Scene - 12 minutes, 90% of the time

    Fire: Water Carrying Apparatus On Scene - 8 minutes, 90% of the time
    Effective Firefighting Force within 20 minutes, 90% of the time
