Association says it's unclear how Garden City can expect "equal or better performance" as a result of unmanning satellite stations without a risk analysis.
The International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) has released its preliminary review of the village-commissioned International
City/County Management Association
(ICMA) fire operations and data analysis report
Among its findings, the association believes with respect to recommendation #6
- unmanning the satellite fire stations during evening hours -- that absent a risk analysis or comprehensive needs assessment it is unclear how Garden City can "expect equal or better performance as a function of this change."
The rebuttal also notes that ICMA has chosen to use NFPA 1720 as the standard by which the department be measured, "when in fact the backbone of the GCFD is the full-time career personnel making NFPA 1710 the applicable standard."
A .pdf version of the IAFF rebuttal in full is attached.
