The Capital Facilities Plan (CFP) for Gig Harbor Fire & Medic One includes in-depth, district-wide, examinations of all existing stations to better assess which stations should be renovated, and which should be replaced. In the case of new and remodeled structures, floor plans have been prepared to indicate what the facilities might look like. In addition, this Capital Facilities Plan includes the proposed improvements for both the Training Campus and Shop Building. For all improvement projects, detailed cost estimates have been prepared for likely costs. 

The planning process has taken place over the past 2+ years, incorporating input from a diverse cross-section of fire district personnel. While it is difficult to predict what the future may hold, district needs were evaluated from a 20-year perspective. To this end, the conclusions reached in this report ensure improvements that will serve the needs of the district and its citizens far into the future.

Gig Harbor Fire & Medic One contracted with Dynamix Consulting Group to develop a Community Risk Assessment: Standards of Cover (CRA: SOC) on May 18, 2021.

The intent of this project is to produce a CRA: SOC document that is based on industry best practices, including recognized National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards; the methodology described in the “Community Risk Assessment: Standards of Cover, 6th Edition,” published by the Center for Public Safety Excellence (CPSE); and any federal and state mandates relative to emergency services.

The CRA: SOC will assess where the fire department and its capabilities as they are today. The project takes a “snapshot in time” of Gig Harbor Fire & Medic One and its response area, reviews the configuration, programs, service delivery, and response performance in detail, and compares the conditions found to national standards, best practices, and the experience of the consultants.
