NANTUCKET / Nantucket Island Project Center
Nantucket Fire Department
The project goal was to provide detailed recommendations to assist the Nantucket Fire Department (NFD) in improving the response time and the quality of emergency responses. To accomplish this goal, we compiled and analyzed all available dispatch call data and compared the results to national standards. The project resulted in four core recommendations that address the underlying problem. These recommendations include: refine the NFD dispatch information system so data received can be analyzed easier, implement a dynamic deployment system to respond quickly to calls downtown, reopen the Siasconset station after expanding and renovating, and modify the simulation we developed to calculate which station should respond to emergency calls.
