Citygate completed a Standards of Coverage and risk assessment study for the Montecito Fire Protection District. This study featured a fire deployment analysis, a comprehensive community risk assessment and gap analysis that included an extensive wildland fire hazard analysis, a review of headquarters staff and operations, and an online community survey. The risk assessment was commissioned to evaluate community risk vulnerability as a strategic planning tool and to address those vulnerabilities as feasible in an effort to mitigate future disasters. This comprehensive assessment included natural and human-caused hazards with potential to affect the Montecito community, with an analysis of the community’s vulnerability for each identified hazard. In addition, Citygate was asked to evaluate current hazard mitigation efforts and propose additional suitable risk mitigation measures for District consideration.
