Community growth will have a great impact on planning.  If there is a great influx of people and services into your area, there will be a need to re-assess the capital items that would be required to accommodate that growth.  The following areas will require careful consideration:

Replacement of worn out or inadequate equipment.

The type of development, whether residential, commercial or industrial, and the implications for equipment because of taller buildings or toxic material storage or manufacture.

Demands on staffing due to increased calls, inspections and education.

The distance development is occurring from existing or proposed fire stations, satellite halls may be required.

Water requirements with systems having adequate fire flows or alternate sources of water.

Establishing guidelines with regards to accessibility, road grades, sprinklers in commercial buildings and the location of hydrants.

Fire Protection Costs and Value

Whenever a movement is begun either to establish fire protection or to improve the existing services, voices may be raised in alarm.  Often the citizens express the feeling that the proposed changes are too costly.  Similar exclamations are frequently heard about the costs of maintaining the existing levels of protection.
