Bellevue Fire Department

Strategic Plan 2012: Protecting Our Community, Strengthening Our Organization

Bellevue Fire’s strategic plan establishes four goals that will focus the Department’s efforts related to public safety, organizational development, infrastructure investment, and public engagement for the coming years. The planning process drew on surveys of residents and staff, interviews with local businesses and contract cities, a review of trends in regional demographic and economic conditions, and discussions with Department staff and leadership to map out a plan for advancing key issues facing the Department. Given the fluidity of the Department’s operating environment, the Plan does not establish an rigid sequence of next steps according to an absolute timeline, but identifies decision points and choices to evaluated when key indicators are seen in the environment or when performance tracking indicates change is necessary.
