Fire-EMS Assessment Provides Valuable Feedback

Sugar Land, Texas – The Center for Public Safety Management’s (CPSM) recent assessment of the Sugar Land Fire-EMS Department confirmed that the city has a highly skilled and progressive department.


Results were recently shared with Sugar Land City Council.


The assessment is part of an overall program of continuous improvement utilizing benchmarks developed by organizations such as the National Fire Protection Association, the Center for Public Safety Excellence and the ICMA Center for Performance Measurement.


Industry experts who conducted the assessment made 28 recommendations related to the deployment of resources, organizational structure, performance measures, community hazard inventory and other areas to ensure that Sugar Land remains one of the safest cities in the country.


A collaborative action plan will be developed by city leaders to review and implement recommendations to enhance operational effectiveness. Recommendations that require increased expenditures will be evaluated through the City’s budget process. 


Additional findings from the Sugar Land Fire–EMS Department’s assessment confirm:

  • a strong focus on code enforcement and public education contributes to the city’s low number of structure fires;
  • strategically placed fire stations and network of resources enable Fire-EMS to send the necessary personnel and equipment based on the nature of the calls; and
  •  a focus on technology and partnerships with hospitals ensures that citizens receive high quality patient care.
