ILLUSTRATIVE PROJECTS:
Fire Protection & Law Enforcement Management & Operations Analysis

Mr. Olson’s project teams have addressed over 25 community fire protection and law enforcement services planning, financing, consolidation, governance, and reorganization projects.  Some examples included preparing a consolidation plan for two fire protection districts and unexpectedly  providing an Acting Fire Chief to address several contentious financial and personnel issues, including retirement benefits;  working with a small rural city and a fire protection district that resulted in recommendations about staffing, financing, equipment replacement, water supply improvements, and swift water rescue;  addressing police and fire protection services for short and long term needs, equipment, training, and facilities, including the design and construction of a new headquarters fire station; a complex fire protection services planning and financingproject involving a town, two fire districts, the county, and other nearby communities; and a police and security services impact study related to the construction of a major commercial development.
