We are very pleased to have commenced a service review for the Greater Stockholm Fire Brigade (Storstockholms brandförsvar); this project marks ORH’s first study in Sweden. The Greater Stockholm Fire Brigade has 740 employees, 15 fire stations and 9 rescue corps and serves 1.2 million people in the Greater Stockholm area. The study will analyse the levels of incident demand and response performance in recent years. Modelling will then be undertaken to assess coverage provided by pumping and aerial appliances.
In 2015, ORH completed its first contract in the USA for Tempe Fire Medical Rescue Department (TFMRD) in Arizona. The overall objective of the study was to evaluate the City’s distribution of fire stations. Given projected growth in the City and the increased demand for EMS responses, the study projected forward the number of incidents to ensure that the recommended solution was future-proof. At the completion of the study, the final report was presented to the City Council and the recommendations were approved. The full case study can be read here.
