Study Summary: Citygate was hired to implement a phased process designed to establish a blueprint for improving San Diego County’s regional fire protection and emergency medical system. The study addressed current levels of service, identified future needs, provided options for a regional governance structure and developed cost feasible proposals to improve the region’s ability to respond to natural or manmade disasters, bolster day-to-day operations for local agencies, and enhance the delivery of fire and emergency medical services in San Diego County.
