Benchmarking provides statistics for comparison with similar emergency operations. To understand where we are now (operationally), we must understand where we have been. Every profession requires standards to operate at a satisfactory level and to establish benchmarks for future progress.
The National Fire Protection Association’s Standards 1710 and 1720 provide such a benchmark. Along with our statistical information, these standards are used to assist fire administration to make critical decisions to provide the best service possible to our citizens, using the resources available.
