STUDY EXAMINES FIRE, EMERGENCY SERVICES DEPARTMENTS

(Mon., Aug. 1, 2011)—Mayor Peter Carlisle today released a consultant's report that examines a potential merger of the Honolulu Fire and Emergency Services departments.

The report, by Emergency Services Consulting International, outlines opportunities to improve public safety and government efficiency. The City is carefully evaluating the report and may accept, reject or modify its recommendations and consider additional information.

There is no time frame for making a decision on a potential merger. Public safety and emergency medical care will remain the City's top priorities during this process.
