On behalf of the men and women of the Novi Fire Department, I am proud to present the Department’s first-ever Strategic Plan. This document is the result of dozens of hours of input and planning by not only the Strategic Planning Team, but also the majority of Fire Department team members. All Fire Department personnel were invited to participate in the planning process and help shape the vision and future.
The process began in late spring 2010 with a core team of key staff members making up the Strategic Planning Steering Committee. I thank each of them for their time, energy and commitment to this project. As a result of the various input received, five Strategic Priorities were identified:
Equipment and Technology
To enhance the operational efficiencies of the FD through the use/deployment of modern EMS/Fire equipment and technology and current Standard Operating Procedures (SOP’s).
To become a model combination organization which embodies mutual respect, consistent communication, and an effective departmental structure.
Promote and market the value of the Novi Fire Department through education and prevention outreach.
Continue to implement effective training which further enhances the professional growth and development of ALL personnel.
Continue to strengthen existing partnerships and explore new opportunities which enhance service delivery.
As we embark over the course of the next few years, Novi Fire Department team members will strive to accomplish the action items of this document toward our ultimate goal of delivering service excellence and optimally functioning as a high performing organization.
