Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Goal and Objectives:

1. Develop a long range plan.
• In this long range plan include the current year, 5year plan and a 10 year plan.
• Be objective and flexible with the ability to adjust to unforeseen changes.



2. Officers and BOD must carry an open dialogue.
• Establish meetings and bring thoughts and ideas to the table that are realistic along with a plan of execution.
• Meet periodically to share ideas and mutually establish the future planning.

3. Put the plan in writing and execute.
• Document the plan and effectively execute.
• Be flexible to changing goals throughout the process and execution. Meeting your goals early is a good thing and is encouraged.
• Eliminating or delaying a goal should be done with scrutiny and discussed before the decision is final.

4. Establish priorities.
• Discuss and implement short term goals.
• Discuss and plan medium range goals.
• Discuss and forecast long term goals.

Strategies:

1. Hold meetings to determine the planning bringing individual thoughts to be discussed. Open goals should be established without determining factors put into place.
2. With initial goals in place, the following factors can then be migrated into the goals to determine the reality of such goals.
3. Determine the proper timeline for the individual goals.
4. Review the goals yearly to determine factors and abilities to accomplish such goals.
5. Evaluate completed and open goals and adjust the plan accordingly.
6. With goals set in place, determine funding, execution and the end accomplishment.
7. Finally, with the met goal plan determine the long range life expectancy of the goal and the ability to carry such in future planning.

Short term planning one to three years;

• Purchase new Radio system; How do we finance? County Financing available and awaiting AFG grant approval/disapproval, at this time it is believed that the budget has dried up.
• Fuel efficiency evaluation, what can we do to improve our fuel consumption. Efforts have shown improvement
• Evaluate our staffing for coverage needs Operating efficiently
• Increase our payroll reserve Difficult with current revenue stream
• Establish structured revenue from Solebury Twp and New Hope Borough for increased Sta. 146 coverage. Update: We have established funding to assist in covering the cost of the daytime responder unit.
• Increase and improve our marketing and public presence. Improvement noted but cost limited, a volunteer has been working on our mailing list to assure we have the best mailing coverage.
• Continue to search for funding sources 13 Grants submitted this year, to date we have received commitment from two organizations and one denial.

Our entire long range planning is continuously reviewed and adjusted as needed. It is our goal to be consistent with our review process in regards to planning and always make an effort to set realistic short term goals and meet them within the projected time. Noted aboe under capabilities is our short range plan with updates added to each section to show progress.
