Dillon has been at the forefront of fire and emergency services planning for almost 30 years across Canada. We have experience with volunteer departments serving predominantly rural areas, composite departments in mid-sized communities, and career departments in large urban centres. Our creative and innovative approaches ensure we are able to tailor comprehensive fire master plans to suit the needs of a specific community and fire service providers.
We understand the importance of having a coordinated effort through pre-planning to effectively manage a response. Comprehensive fire and emergency plans and effective training will ultimately save lives and money; protect property, public health and the environment; maintain economic stability; and help ensure the continuance of critical business functions and services during disruptive events.
Since the adoption of NFPA 1710 and 1720 standards, Dillon has been assisting municipalities with the implications of meeting these guidelines. This goes beyond station location, to staffing, equipment needs and all of the other functions a modern fire department must deal with. Dillon remains up-to-date regarding the fire and emergency services industry and related standards and guidelines.
