This briefing includes data for the period ending July 31, 2010.
Reviewing the Carson City Scorecard, a red indicator has been noted under "A Healthy Community" perspective. One of the strategic objectives listed to support this quality of life perspective is "Public health services are available." One of the services provided by Carson City is ambulance services. The key indicators for this service is response times and the number of calls or demand for this service. Response times both for July, 2010 and year-to-date have risen above the target of 6 minutes. There appears to be a spike in the response times for July, which has pushed the average year-to-date response times over the target of 6 minutes. Fire Chief Stacey Giomi is investigating this situation and will make a report during the September 2, 2010 Board meeting.
