Independent review will help shape the future of fire services in the Yukon

The Government of Yukon has received the final report of the independent Review of the Yukon Fire Marshal’s Office Fire Suppression and Rescue Resource Distribution. The review contains 104 recommendations in the areas of governance, operations, strategy and risk management and compliance.

The review was completed by Response Specialties Consulting. The Yukon government is now analyzing the findings of the review and will work in partnership with stakeholders in Yukon communities, including the Yukon’s valued fire service volunteers, to determine next steps to establish sustainable fire service delivery to Yukon communities.

The full review is now available on Yukon.ca

It is great to see a number of recommendations in the review that will ensure sustainable delivery of rural fire services to communities across the Yukon, including in small, unincorporated communities, through innovative and sustainable solutions to the fire protection challenges we face in the Yukon. Thank you to Response Specialties Consulting for their work on this thorough review, as well as every person who took the time to meet with the contractor and add it voice to the final product.
