Ozaukee County Communities Complete Phase I Feasibility
Analysis of Fire & EMS Service Sharing Opportunities
Following an eight-month study of potential service-sharing opportunities across nine (9) paid on-call fire departments in Ozaukee County, the Wisconsin Policy Forum (WPF) today released a report outlining the results of its independent analysis. The report, entitled First Response: Addressing Fire & Emergency Medical Service Challenges in Ozaukee County, represents a Phase I feasibility analysis on behalf of the ten separate jurisdictions that initiated the review. Participating communities included the Cities of Cedarburg, Mequon and Port Washington, the Towns of Belgium and Cedarburg, the Villages of Fredonia, Grafton, Saukville and Thiensville, and Waubeka.
