Portland Fire and Rescue
Fire management--United States--Planning
In order to maintain response times alongside a growing population while continuing to improve quality of service to the City of Portland, Portland Fire & Rescue (PF&R) is working toward developing strategies to prevent emergencies from happening rather than solely responding to proactive strategies to reduce fire and medical risks before they become worst-case scenarios where a 9-1-1 call must be made. To this end, the City of Portland launched the Vision Zero Campaign for zero fire or traffic fatalities in the service area. The Blueprint for Success strategy, in turn, was created to act as the means of achieving this goal. Blueprint for Success is intended to provide an example and methodology for preventative emergency planning in Portland. This report presents the initial Blueprint development and findings from developing and applying the process in Fire Management Area (FMA) 22. This Blueprint report contains: The Blueprint for Success Toolkit: A methodology for PF&R data analysis, outreach, and strategy development at the FMA level, and The FMA 22 Case Study: The pilot application of the Blueprint, including background research and data analysis, community engagement results, and final strategies prioritized by Station 22.
