Fire Department Management Audit
On January 12, 2010, Citygate Associates was hired to conduct a comprehensive organizational and management audit of the Fire Department.
CityGate presented their findings at the City Council Study Session on November 4, 2010. You may view the presentation as well as its accompanying documents below.
According to the findings, the Beverly Hills Fire Department is "at all levels very cooperative, professional and technically competent." The audit also found that "given the struggle to keep up while coping with an ever-tightening economy, there is pride and ongoing effort to deliver the best customer service with the currently available resources. Fires are being attended to and medical calls are being answered with excellent patient care."
This audit is part of the City’s continuing effort to evaluate all of its departments’ services and service delivery in terms of customer service, best practices, efficiency and fiscal responsibility. The report from Citygate provides recommendations for implementation to improve core services, increase safety for the public and fire department personnel, and increase efficiency.
