What services should the Bellevue Fire Department prioritize? How satisfied are you with the department's services? How would you like to receive information from the department?
Resident input on these questions, to be collected in a survey offered in six languages, will help shape the fire department's strategic plan, which guides how the department allocates its resources.
The Bellevue department does more than fight fires and perform CPR, preparing the city for disasters and preventing fires through inspections among other things. Prioritizing services and investments is particularly important when a sluggish economy necessitates budget cuts.
The strategic plan is typically updated every five years. The 2007-2012 strategic plan is available, along with other details about the department on the department's home page.
Please share your input and help shape the future of the fire department. The strategic plan survey will be available through Jan. 29. In addition to English, the survey is available in Russian, Spanish, Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese.
