Evaluating Community Emergency Services
How adequate are your community’s fire suppression and emergency services? What guidelines or benchmarks do you follow for evaluating your community’s services? How do you decide which benchmarking system to follow in order to reduce your community’s risks?
These and many other compelling questions about a community’s public safety services will be addressed during Evaluating Community Emergency Services, a Public Entity Risk Institute Symposium being held Sept. 23-27. The Symposium will present seven Issues and Ideas Papers over five days to help local government managers, fire officials, fire officers, and citizen leaders sort out evaluation of emergency services when community risk is considered.

LEADERSHIP FORUM CAPS THE SYMPOSIUM
Live Event Via the Phone, Sept. 26, 3:00-4:30 PM Eastern Time
A live, 90-minute program will cap the week-long Symposium. The PERI Leadership Forum: Comparing and Contrasting Emergency Services Assessment Options will feature three national experts who will talk about how different systems for assessing and benchmarking a community’s fire and emergency services can work together for addressing a community’s risk.
During this paid event, speakers will take questions live. The program will examine accreditation, the ISO Public Protection Classification system, and NFPA 1710, and how these different systems can serve a community jointly and alone.
