In 2013, the Franklin County Fire Chiefs Association (FCFCA) requested the Franklin Regional Council of Governments (FRCOG) conduct a study on current fire service within the County. A FCFCA sub-committee worked with FRCOG staff to develop the study and the final report. The FRCOG staff also worked closely with Municipal Resources Inc., a municipal consulting organization, to provide technical assistance on the final report.

The findings of the report are based on data collected through a survey sent to all Franklin County Fire Departments, response data from the Massachusetts Department of Fire Services, and research conducted by staff. It provides a baseline understanding of fire service within the County and offers recommendations to address gaps in service, focusing particularly on areas where further collaboration might meet those needs.
