A. Discussion on combining
the Fire Protection Unit and the Emergency Management Services of the City
of Collinsville. -- The commissioners watched and asked
questions throughout a presentation by the department heads for both Fire
& EMS which was positive towards combining the two city departments. Combination
benefits anticipated would include improved citizen safety, improved level
of patient care, improved staffing levels with easier recruitment and retention,
and potential improvement in fire insurance ISO rating. Most firefighters
already have at least the minimum required medical training. Several EMS personnel
already are fire trained. Oher EMS personnel would need to pass the fire agility
test and Oklahoma State Pension (medical) exam and then be crossed trained.
Several local communities have combined the Fire/EMS including Skiatook &
Owasso. EMS made 1118 runs in a 1 year period compared to 270 for the fire
department. There are occasions now where a fire truck waits for additional
firefighters to arrive before responing to a call while EMS personnel already
at the station are not trained to make the fire run. The presentation indicated
the pay for EMS personnel would be increased and it would be easier to retain
those with advanced life saving skills. The City Manager will look at the
financial impact of the combination before further consideration.
