Communications and Engagement Consulting Services

Salt Spring Island Fire Rescue

REQUEST FOR QUOTATION: Communications and Engagement Consulting Services

In 2013 the Salt Spring Island Fire Protection District (“District”) undertook a detailed design and costing for a new Fire Hall to replace existing facilities. The District did not proceed further because the necessary borrowings to build the proposed facility were not approved by the electorate.

The District has decided to again review the adequacy of its Ganges Fire Hall No.1 and make recommendations for reimagined fire hall facilities. The District is in the process of engaging an outside consultant to chair the “New Fire Hall Advisory Working Group” (“Advisory Group”) – a select committee of the Board of Trustees tasked to develop recommendations regarding the provision of a new fire hall and associated fire protection services.

The District is requesting proposals for consulting services to develop and implement a communication/public engagement plan that will support the work of the Advisory Group.

The District’s goal is to improve and expand communications/engagement internally with the Fire-Rescue family and externally with the broader Salt Spring Island community through improved strategies, messaging and processes to:

  • Build awareness of the Advisory Group’s mandate and responsibilities;
  • Maintain a high level of interest in the Advisory Group’s initiatives and help foster community support for these initiatives;
  • Facilitate the flow of information sharing and engagement both within the organization and externally between local audiences and special interest groups;
  • Develop a consistent professional image for Advisory Group materials;
  • Be proactive in disseminating the District’s message across both print and social media platforms; and
  • Plan how to respectfully and appropriately respond to contrary viewpoints or mis-information.
