Public Safety Solutions, Inc. (PSSi) is pleased to announce being selected by Peters Township and North Strabane Township, PA, to conduct an analysis of their fire services program. Peters and North Strabane Townships are located in north Washington County, approximately sixteen (16) miles south of the City of Pittsburgh.

As stated in the Request for Proposals, "the purpose of the Study is to determine if realistic alternative methods exist to provide fire services with increased effectiveness, cost efficiencies, and economies of scale. PSSi will conduct a review of the Peters and North Strabane Fire Departments' delivery systems. The Study will include consideration of partial, functional and full consolidation, regional partnerships, and will include delivery models of fire suppression, prevention and emergency management services.

The evaluation is designed to determine and achieve the following benefits:

- Enhanced firefighter safety
- Enhanced cost control and containment of mobile equipment, and fixed building locations
- Increased efficiency
- Increased effectiveness
- Identification of the right-sized organization to meet both community needs
- Coordination & use of resources with elimination of artificial boundaries and duplication of services
- Standardization of services and programs offered to the communities

Both Townships' fire departments are combination career and volunteer fire departments. They serve a combined population of approximately 34,000 in a geographic area of nearly 50 square miles.

We at PSSi are looking forward to assisting the Townships and their respective Fire Departments with this important undertaking.

The following is a link to a recent news article that provides additional information regarding this important joint fire department merger study.
