Fire and Emergency Medical Services Consulting
When it must be done right the first time
When your study must be done right, there's only one option. Citygate Associates, LLC is the single most experienced and relied-upon fire and emergency medical services consultancy in the Western U.S. Within recent years, Citygate has executed many of the largest fire service studies we know of, including for the Counties of Los Angeles, San Diego, and El Dorado, as well as the Cities of San Diego, Oakland, Stockton, and Pasadena and the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District and both the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles. Many of these agencies have repeatedly relied upon Citygate for their fire and EMS needs.

Citygate is pleased to announce a new service offering. By popular request, we are offering two new ways to get the right person, with the right skills, right when you need them! When an urgent issue arises, you will not need to go through a cumbersome RFP/RFQ process! A few of the unique benefits include: access to an on-call chief and coach, unmatched consulting flexibility, rapid response and resolution, independent perspective, and political sensitivity. Contact us to discuss or customize your plan!
Having performed over 25 such studies, we know of no other firm with near the same level of expertise ascertaining feasibility and providing detailed implementation work for consolidations, contract-for-services, and other forms of regional fire services. Our staff has not just designed shared fire services, they have worked in merged fire services, so they deeply understand the practical difficulties!
Our team of fire service and EMS professionals not only understand patient care, but also the changes occurring in pre-hospital health care. We understand community paramedicine and post-discharge care, with the associated financing of EMS changes in the fluid health care reform environment. We can conduct service delivery studies along with economic reviews, quality assurance, and quality improvement program compliance reviews.
We are intimately familiar with comprehensive reviews of all facets of fire operations, including fire prevention, fire response, fire administration, emergency medical services, fire investigation, fire training, disaster preparedness, administrative support positions, information systems, capital facilities and apparatus, fire department fees, emergency preparedness, regional issues, and fire public education.
We regularly perform location/relocation studies of fire stations to provide long-range service delivery for our clients. The evaluation of station locations often includes a comprehensive assessment of mutual-aid/automatic-aid agreements and their effectiveness and staffing, as well as an analysis of alternative deployment plans.
