Citygate conducted a fire services deployment study for the City of San Bernardino. This deployment study included a comprehensive data analysis as part of a full Standards of Coverage analysis. Citygate also evaluated and answered three critical questions: (1) If the current fiscal crisis requires the City to consider closing fire stations to help balance its budget, can any be closed? (2) Should the City continue to provide paramedics through the Fire Department on firefighting units to support the County-managed private ambulance contract? (3) What are the high-level options for the City to consider for contracting out or merging fire services with another agency?
