How a 3rd Party Study can Improve Your Fire Department

With volunteer numbers falling, calls increasing, and more demands being placed on career departments, a study is a valuable investment for Chiefs and municipal leaders to check the status of your organization today, and its strategic planning for the future.

Why Invest in a GES Study?

Less than 1% of the 30,000 fire departments in the United States are accredited, or have had a holistic evaluation, and none conducted by a team with our unique experience.

Unlike an ISO inspection that only rates structural fire capability, we examine the full range of services most departments deliver today and focus on people, as much as statistics.

Fires and Rescues are universal, but every department does things differently.

Without unifying national doctrines or standards, many are unaware of how counterparts operate in other states, let alone other countries. We will share best national and international practice to make your best better.
