RFP - Community Risk Assessment/Standards of Cover (CRA/SOC) Study for the Monterey Fire Department, due October 6, 2020

The City of Monterey (“City”) is seeking proposals from qualified firms or individuals to conduct a Community Risk Assessment/Standards of Cover Study (CRA/SOC) for the Monterey Fire Department. The City is a charter city located in the County of Monterey. The City of Monterey’s Fire Department is an all-risk fire agency that provides services to the residents, businesses, and visitors not only in the City of Monterey but, via contracts for service, to the cities of Pacific Grove, Carmel-by-the-Sea, and Sand City as well as the Monterey Regional Airport, Naval Support Activity Monterey (NSAM), and La Mesa Village military housing. The CRA/SOC will assist the City in ensuring a safe, effective, and appropriately-sized response force for fire suppression, emergency medical services, and specialty response situations. Given fiscal challenges and the evolving needs of our community in recent years, it is timely to collaboratively evaluate current practices and chart a course for future deployment, facilities, staffing and operations. RFP IN PDF
