Media Coverage

“This project represents the most thorough, professional, and science-based study ever completed regarding the impact of staffing and response times on service delivery and firefighter safety. It will benefit local decision makers tremendously as they work to determine and provide the resources necessary to adequately protect their communities from fire and other life safety emergencies. The final product is the result of significant effort on the part of the entire research team, and it has been a professional privilege to be part of it.”
