Title: Scotts Valley Fire


1
Scotts Valley Fire Protection District

Standards of Response Coverage




2
Planning Goals
  • To reduce the number of fires and other emergency
    incidents using public education, fire protection
    systems and other pre event mitigations
  • To minimize the loss of life in fires, medical
    emergencies and accidents with quick response of
    well trained personnel and appropriate equipment
  • To reduce the number and severity of injuries in
    fires and other emergency incidents with quick
    response of well trained personnel and
    appropriate equipment
  • To reduce the commercial, economic and social
    impacts of fires and other emergency incidents
  • To safeguard the environment
  • To provide the best service possible using
    prudent fiscal practices.

3
Overview
  • Defines levels of Service
  • Standard methodology
  • Recognizes diversity and not one size fits all
  • Systems approach
  • Comprehensive view
  • All Risk based

4
Plan Approach
  • Articulates level of response to emergency
    incidents of all types
  • Provides a nexus between response plan and public
    policy funding levels
  • Applies current industry standards
  • Considers firefighter as well as public safety
  • Data driven
  • Incorporates automatic aid

5
Risk Analysis
  • Target hazards factored in
  • Community demographics
  • City of Scotts Valley reports build out in 7 to
    10 years

6
Performance Objectives
  • Basis for planning
  • Structural fires
  • Medical emergencies non breathing
  • Wildland fires
  • Traffic collisions
  • Hazardous materials releases

7
Flashover
8
Response Time
  • Early reports of emergencies
  • Call processing time
  • Dispatch time
  • Traffic patterns/traffic control devices
  • Location where response is initiated
  • Road system
  • Topography
  • Apparatus agility
  • Address visibility

9
Automatic Fire Sprinklers
10
Response Travel Mitigations
  • Signal emitters
  • Limit traffic restrictors
  • Adequate access required for subdivisions
  • Specialty apparatus
  • B/C response in designated rural areas
  • Address identification

11
Light Vehicle Time Analysis
  • Light vehicle response effective on
    narrow/mountainous roads
  • Limited versatility

12
Medical Emergencies
  • Most serious Non breathing, 4 to 6 min.
  • Public CPR training
  • Emergency medical dispatch
  • 1st response paramedics within 4 to 6 min.
  • Transport within 20 min.
  • Trauma patients transported to a trauma center
    within the Golden Hour

13
Erba and Glenwood
14
La Madrona and Glenwood
15
Response Time Standard
  • 5 minutes to 90 of the incidents in the urban
    area
  • 12 minutes to 90 of the incidents in the rural
    area

16
Critical Tasks
  • Structural Fires (hydrant and non hydrant)
  • Wildland fires
  • Medical emergencies
  • Traffic Collisions
  • Hazardous materials releases

17
Staffing
  • Automatic and mutual aid
  • Off duty recall
  • Paid call firefighters
  • Training

18
Concentration
  • For 2006, Erba Station handled 93.3 of calls in
    initial response area
  • For 2006, Glenwood Station handled 92.4 of calls
    in initial response area

19
Recommendations
  • Reaffirm current response time goals as follows
  • Urban zone Response time of 5 minutes or less
    for the first arriving company 90 of the time
    with the full first alarm response on scene
    within 15 minutes.
  • Rural zone Response time of 12 minutes or less
    for the first arriving company 90 of the time
    with the full first alarm response on scene
    within 30 minutes.
  • Given fiscal constraints, operate two fire
    stations to best cover the District.
  • Match quantity of first alarm response resources
    to the analysis of critical tasks using automatic
    aid agreements and based on dispatched incident
    type.

20
Recommendations (Cont.)
  • Continue the requirement for automatic fire
    sprinklers in all new construction of buildings
    as an immediate mitigation of structural fires.
  • Provide advanced life support paramedic service
    based on the majority of incidents that require
    medical treatment.
  • Continue operation of engines as primary response
    to all types of emergencies to best allow for
    backup and response redundant incidents, thus
    maintaining reliability of response.

21
Recommendations (Cont.)
  • Utilize agreements for specialized resources for
    ladder truck operations, aircraft, heavy
    equipment and fire crews as needed.
  • As funding permits, add one firefighter position
    to each shifts minimum staffing level to
    increase effectiveness and to assure water tender
    response to rural areas.
  • As funding permits, relocate the Erba Lane
    Headquarters to the District owned property on La
    Madrona Drive for best strategic location.
