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 2012. Some of our response goals:

    Turn Out Time: 60 seconds

    Life Threats:   Paramedic On Scene - 8 minutes, 90% of the time
    Amulance On Scene - 12 minutes, 90% of the time

    Non-Life Threats:   Paramedic On Scene - 12 minutes, 90% of the time
    Amulance On Scene - 15 minutes, 90% of the time

    Fire: Water Carrying Apparatus On Scene - 8 minutes, 90% of the time
