Summary/abstract:
  • The current method of delivering Emergency Medical Services, both emergency and non-emergency functions to its external and internal customers lacks responsiveness and organizational commitment. There is also a current duplication of administrative, training and operational functions which are fiscally inappropriate. The purpose of this research paper is to assess the current system and determine if consolidation is a rational and feasible method to increase service delivery. The research questions that are to be answered are: 1) Are there short and long term fiscal savings that can be recognized by the consolidation of these departments? 2) What improvements in the delivery of service to both internal and external customers might be realized by the consolidation of these departments? 3) Is there currently a most efficient nationally recognized method of delivering these types of services?

Series Data:Executive Fire Officer Program. Applied Research Project
Summary/abstract:
  • The City and County of San Francisco has not escaped the budget problems that have been squeezing our local governments for the past several years. The local governing body has searched for various methods to downsize local government while continuing to provide effective service to the community. The emergency services, fire, police and EMS have been part of the scrutiny as well as have the non-emergency services. Considered in the area of emergency services, the question has been asked to identify where service duplication currently exists within the emergency services and how could this be eliminated without effecting service quality? Specifically identified for strong consideration was the current method of EMS delivery with the jurisdiction. The purpose of this research was to study how other local governments addressed EMS delivery within their local jurisdiction and see if any of these methods could be applied to the situation as it exits in San Francisco. Of special interest was the question of using paramedic engine companies with the fire department as the primary EMS providers since this concept could eliminate duplication of service, i.e. the Department of Public Health (ALS) ambulance service. This concept was further found to be of great interest since other local governments who had similar EMS delivery systems as currently existed in San Francisco have made the seemingly successful transition to paramedic engine companies.

Series Data:Executive Fire Officer Program. Applied Research Project
Summary/abstract:
  • This paper will explore the demands placed upon Fire Service leaders to provide a product. The product is service. Consolidation of fire and emergency medical services, fire and building departments, city and county (regional and local) fire departments all implicate this common demand. It can be concluded that the present state of the economy in concert with the public's view of the fire service as another bureaucratic body, forces the fire executive not only to provide services, but integrate the most prudent approach into their delivery. He then becomes accountable to his decisions. Accountability replaces the "good ole boy" and "that's the way it is" acceptance that had been enjoyed throughout the years by many fire service leaders. A systematic, planned approach, using available resources that "grow" with the situation, follows the Incident Command system. Perhaps this system, in concert with education, may provide fire executives with the means to be accountable to their decisions, while introducing the receivers (public) of the product to the decision process.

Series Data:Executive Fire Officer Program. Applied Research Project
Summary/abstract:
  • The restructuring and merging of the Lexington Fire and E.M.S. Departments was a bold way to solve internal and external problems within the departments. In the paper, these problems were addressed and recommendations were made to resolve the conflicts. The following subject areas were addressed: Restructure of Fire and E.M.S.; National Programs; I.S.O. Recommendations; The Fair Labor Standards Act; Fire and E.M.S. Standards; Establishment of a Fire Inspection Program; Interviews with Chief Richard Dyer and Chief Richard Lehmann. The purpose of this applied research project was to correct some of the problems which exist in the two departments and to address recommendations by outside authorities. The research was extensive and should have significant positive impact on the service provided. The procedures used in this research project were the examination of current problems and national programs, recommendations from outside sources, a review of past statistics, and interviews with top people in the field at the time. After the information was compiled, it was examined and compared. Through a review of the information, the problems outlined were examined for solutions. The best solutions were recommended. The recommendation was for merging to provide the following benefits: Personnel supervision; Pay coordination; Joint purchasing; Organized dispatch; Shift alignment; Improved utilization of the chief's position; Increased productivity; Improved accountability; Adequate apparatus response. Additionally, the plan will meet I.S.O. recommendations, comply with The Fair Labor Standards Act, and establish an inspection program. With these recommendations, the Lexington Fire and E.M.S. Departments can become one, and provide more professional service to the citizens they serve.

Summary/abstract:
  • The purpose of this research was to review existing methods of pre-hospital care, evaluate available research and recognize alternative methods of service delivery available to the citizens of Virginia Beach. Pre-hospital care for the city of Virginia Beach has been provided by all volunteer rescue squads functioning under the administrative direction of the Division of Emergency Medical Services. This service has been supplemented by the Virginia Beach Fire Department, through the response of fire apparatus with trained emergency medical technicians on all life threatening calls which are closer by time or distance. The impact of development and population increases with the city of Virginia Beach resulted in a tremendous increase in public utilization of services. Response to emergency medical incidents by the fire department increased to approximately 50 per cent of the departments total calls and total emergency medical calls within the Division of EMS indicate similar increases. The work load, extensive training programs, tests and renewal of certifications at regular intervals placed a heavy demand on the members of the volunteer rescue squads. The effect of these demands were seen with problems in retention of members and increased response times to emergency calls. The fire department has provided assistance to the rescue squads since 1975, however fire service personnel have not been allowed training certification beyond BLS. With fire department involvement in pre hospital care on the rise, fire service members want additional training and feel the patient would benefit directly if ALS training were available. After a review of literature and an evaluation of data, it is apparent the fire department has the resources to achieve a greater role in providing emergency care to the citizens of Virginia Beach.
