In early 2018, both the City Council and the Town Board contracted with the Center for Public Safety Management (CPSM) to complete an analysis of the fire services-service delivery and fire staffing models of each entity (City and Town). As described in the report, “This analysis is designed to provide the City and Town with a thorough and unbiased review of services provided to the City by the Canandaigua Fire Department and those fire departments serving the Town.”

The City of Canandaigua is served primarily by the City of Canandaigua Fire Department with support from the Canandaigua VA Fire Department. The Town of Canandaigua is served by the City of Canandaigua Fire Department, Cheshire Volunteer Fire Department, East Bloomfield Volunteer Fire Department, and Bristol Volunteer Fire Department.

The City Manager and Town Manager have confirmed a joint meeting of the City Council and Town Board to be held on July 31, 2018, 7:00pm, at the Wood Library located at 134 N. Main Street, Canandaigua for the purposes of a presentation directly from CPSM representatives. The meeting is a public meeting and is open to the public.
