COVID-19: City of Winnipeg response and latest updates on City facilities and services COVID-19 : Mesures prises par la Ville de Winnipeg et dernières nouvelles sur les installations et services municipaux

2020 Strategic Direction

The Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service (WFPS) developed a comprehensive strategic plan to help ensure current and future service demands are met. A forward-looking assessment of this nature has never previously been conducted for the department.

The 2020 Strategic Direction prepares WFPS to appropriately meet current and future needs, taking into consideration three reports: the WFPS Master Plan, the Community Risk Assessment Standards of Cover, and findings in the Fire Underwriters Survey.

The recommendations in each report are transformative, moving from the current state which has changed very little since unicity amalgamation in the early 1970s to a future state which includes new traffic management technology, updated performance standards and industry best practices, and preparation for a consistently growing population and the coinciding emergency call volumes.

The recommendations address serious infrastructure and operating capacity deficits that threaten the ability of the department to fulfill its response and regulatory mandates.

Note that possible implementation of any of the recommendations will be further considered by the department in subsequent strategic action plans and future budget submissions for Council’s consideration.
