Strategic Planning For Fire Departments & Local Government

Our Experience

RON GRANER, Fire Chief (retired) Public Safety Consultant 

Management Philosophy

Safety of Emergency Responders & the Public Must ALWAYS BE Priority 1.

Strategic Planning is vital to assure Safety Efficiency & Effectiveness

For agencies that serve the public it is vital that the public be included in service delivery reviews and in the strategic planning efforts for the agency's serving their community.

Fire Chiefs, Elected Public Officials, Company Officers and the Rank and File members of all fire rescue services must all work together with the citizens and taxpayers of their community to jointly assure that their service delivery systems are Effective, Efficient & Safe.

Citizens and Taxpayers have the right to expect and demand that all of their public services are Operationally Efficient, Cost Effective, and that those services are Properly Managed & Safe for the Public & Safe for their  Emergency Responders.

Why Chose Us?

Chief Graner has over 40 years of strategic planning and service review experience in a wide scope of organizations.
