Fire Department Releases Strategic Plan

The Los Angeles County Fire Department has published “Engineering our Future,” a strategic plan to address the department’s goals and priorities in its desire to provide more effective emergency services to the millions of residents its serves each day, according to  department news release.

The 52-page report sets goals for preventing injury and illness, innovating new delivery systems, ensuring the Fire Department’s financial stability, containing risks, increasing its use of technology and forming better communication with each community.

“While we enjoy a proud legacy of innovation and exemplary service, we plan to become a multi-faceted global leader in public safety services by 2020,” says Fire Chief Daryl L. Osby.  “We have embarked on a multi-year strategic planning effort to set a new course for our almost 90-year-old organization.  

“This approach was uniquely collaborative, given our paramilitary-style organization,” Osby said in the statement. “From the first day of this effort in 2011, we set aside rank and invited all 4,800 members of our team to submit suggestions and project ideas, and to become active members of the project teams.

The department has posted the plan on its website atwww.fire.lacounty.gov, and is publicizing it on its social media sites, including Facebook (facebook.com/LACoFD), Twitter (@LACo_FD) and YouTube (youtube.com/user/LosAngelesCountyFD).  A full copy of the report may be downloaded at:fire.lacounty.gov/PDFs/LACFD_Strategic%20Plan_2012_web.pdf.
