Emergency Service Capability (Police) • For FY2016, the patrol staffing levels remained unchanged due to operational and fiscal constraints. Despite this situation, the department continues to realign its resources and adjust shifts to maintain adequate response times. 5. Service Demand (Fire) • Achieved an 8 percent increase in the number of patients who survived sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). Overall cardiac arrest survivability was 22 percent in the first two quarters of FY2016 compared to 14 percent in FY2015 which is three and a half times the national average of 6 percent. • Established and implemented a call review process to evaluate the department's performance on structure fires. This process provides a method to determine structure fire conditions upon Fire Department arrival in order to measure mitigation performance. • In FY2016, 95 percent of structure fires were confined to the defined area of origin based on conditions at time of arrival. • Procured a fire station alerting system to replace obsolete station alerting equipment in all nine fire stations. Installation of the equipment began in January 2016 and was completed in April 2016. This state-of-the-art technology will provide more detailed information to responding crews and is expected to aid in reducing response times to emergency calls. • Total response times have been reduced by 48 seconds for emergency medical incidents and by 37 seconds for structure fires when compared to FY2014 response times. Additionally, the number of emergency medical incidents meeting response time goals increased by 12 percent and the number of structure fires meeting response time goals increased by 3 percent during this same time period. 15,000 10:04 10:04 9:50 9:50 9:36 9:36 9:21 9:21 9:07 9:07 8:52 8:52 8:38 8:38 8:24 FY 12 FY 13 FY 14 FY 15 FY16 Total Response Time All Incidents 15,000 10:04 10:04 9:50 9:50 9:36 9:36 9:21 9:21 9:07 9:07 8:52 8:52 8:38 8:38 8:24 FY 12 FY 13 FY 14 FY 15 FY16 Total Response Time All Incidents 15,000 8:24 FY 12 FY 13 FY 14 FY 15 FY16 Total Response Time All Incidents 15,000 8:24 FY 12 FY 13 FY 14 FY 15 FY16 Total Response Time All Incidents Community Safety
