2020 Fire & Rescue Survey

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. This strategic plan will establish a vision for the future, a mission, and a set of organizational values for WFRD. The plan will also identify a set of priority goals and strategies, as well as indicators to measure progress toward each goal. By completing this survey, you are helping plan the future of the City. The input from this survey will assist in developing the strategic plan and help guide budget decisions. The results will be consolidated and summarized in a report.
