Leaders are looking at how to better deliver services in times of emergencies.
VICTOR — Last May, the town of Victor launched a public safety and emergency services study.
On Monday, a workshop is planned to hear the findings of the study and to evaluate future organizational needs.
Officials from the town, the village of Victor, Victor Volunteer Fire Department, Fishers Fire District, Fishers Fire Department, the Ontario County Sheriff’s Office, State Police, the Victor-Farmington Volunteer Ambulance and Center for Governmental Research worked together on the evaluation.
Resident surveys have been conducted, data has been reviewed and options have been communicated to residents.
The public is invited to attend the workshop.
The Center for Governmental Research will present studies — which can be found at www.victorny.org and www.cgr.org/victor/ — that identify trends and develop reasons to look at consolidation and to evaluate and strategically plan for fire and emergency medical services.
The studies looked at changing demographics and lifestyle, which affects the status and availability of volunteers; increased demands for service and how training is creating greater demands on fire companies’ increased costs; the different priorities of fire departments and municipal leaders; duplication of equipment; changing expectations of the public; and service delivery models.
