Standards of Cover

A Standards of Cover document is a systematic way of looking at the basic service provided by an emergency services agency. The purpose of a Standards of Cover document is to provide a system that assists with: assessing community risks, defining baseline and benchmark emergency response performance objectives, planning future station locations, determining apparatus and staffing patterns, evaluating workload and ideal unit utilization, measuring service delivery performance, and supporting strategic planning and policy development relative to resource procurement and allocation.
