An organizational vision is a clear and succinct description of what the organization or community should look like after it successfully implements its strategies and achieves its full potential. Ideally, the vision creates tension between this ideal, the current state of affairs, and what is possible. During CWIFR’s community based strategic planning process, members of the working group crafted the following vision:
Central Whidbey Island Fire & Rescue; world class fire & rescue services
World class may mean many things. In order to provide clarity for this simple, but audacious vision, the working group described what this would look like in our community:
CWIFR has implemented fiscally sustainable, fire and rescue services best practices. Working with, not simply for the community, we have developed Central Whidbey Island into a safe and resilient place to live and work. The community has trust and ownership of their fire and rescue services as we serve with openness and transparency.
