Fire & Rescue Long Term Master Plan Study

The City of Winchester and Winchester Fire & Rescue Department (WFRD) is working with Emergency Services Consulting International, a consulting firm specializing in assisting local governments, to facilitate a strategic planning process for the City. The purpose of the study is to conduct a comprehensive review of the Winchester Fire and Rescue Department, identify future needs, and provide recommendations for moving the department forward. At the April 28, 2020 City Council meeting, ESCI presented the Long Term Master Plan which provides 36 recommendations for short-, mid- and long-term strategies to improve the department’s service delivery, communication, trust, morale, and future. 


During these difficult times, Winchester Fire & Rescue continues to provide responsive, compassionate and professional care.  We are proud and honored to be on the front lines to serve you.  Help us flatten the curve by social distancing, proper hand washing, and following guidelines set by the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the governor issued “Stay at Home Order”.  We are in this together and we will get through this together!

Stay safe and healthy!

From Your Winchester Fire & Rescue Family!
