Charlottesville Fire Department Publishes 2021 Strategic Plan


CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - The Charlottesville Fire Department is proud to share its 2021 Strategic Plan.  Both community members and CFD firefighters came together to develop the goals and objectives to guide the organization over the next three-to-five years.  

Charlottesville Fire Department embarked on a strategic plan development process in June 2020 and recently published a community and employee-driven strategic plan.  The department gathered direct and open feedback from more than 70 percent of the employees through a comprehensive process.   To better align the community's needs, the Charlottesville Fire Department solicited feedback from one-hundred community and business leaders.   Forty-six individuals provide direct input through a pandemic-adapted stakeholder session.   The information provided insight into the needs for community engagement, community marketing, and program gaps.  Furthermore, an eleven-employee workgroup convened to identify themes and opportunities.  Based on employee feedback and the workgroup's input, the department developed six overarching goals.

The goals and accompanying objectives guide the organization over the next three-to-five years. 

The evaluation and maintenance of the 2021 Strategic Plan are dynamic, reviewed routinely, and adapted to meet the organization's changing environment.  The department utilizes a rhythmic schedule for intentional and routine review and adaptation.  The city's dynamic nature and department's environment require an agile and flexible strategic plan.  The Charlottesville Fire Department plans to update the objectives and tasks annually while maintaining a three-to-five-year strategic view.

The 2021 CFD Strategic Plan is available on the city's website.
