Criteria for Prioritization

(ranked by Priority, 1 being highest priority)

The analysis of fire service need is illustrated below. It includes the following categories:

Dark Green = Less than 300 seconds of travel time (target urban service level) from a station in an urban LUTA.

Yellow = Less than 390 seconds of travel time (target rural service level) from a station.

Red = Longer service times than urban or rural targets.

  1. Coordination with other Primary Services – Prioritize expanding where fire service lags other urbanized services.
  2. Urban Growth Areas – Prioritize areas designated for urban growth as defined by the land use plan.
  3. Development Velocity – Prioritize areas where expansion of services will serve many potential new developments in the short-term as opposed to a single development.
