Emergency Services-response times
(Question No 442)
Mr Pratt asked the Minister for Police and Emergency Services, upon notice, on 11 March 2003:
What is the most recent data available that lists response times of
(a) urban fire brigades and (b) ambulances and can that data listing response times be provided as part of this response;
Is there a response time standard, if so, what is it, if not, why not;
Can you provide the response time figures for 1(a) and (b) above for each month from November 2001 to February 2003;
Of the figures provided in paragraph 3 are there any response times that don't meet the standard (if there is a standard) or the Government's approval.
Mr Wood:The answer to the member's question is as follows:
The most recent data available that lists response times of the ACT Fire Brigade and ACT Ambulance Services is February 2003 and is listed at Attachment 1.
Yes, there is a response time standard which is included in the data titled "month target". It should be noted that the 18th January 2003 bushfires are treated as one event due to the scale and individual responses were not captured. The aggregate annual performance measures are published by the Productivity Commission Report on Government Services which is produced as a public document each January and is accessible at www.pc.gov.au/gsp.
