Smeby (2014) suggests that emergency services issues often require a policy analysis to determine an appropriate solution. This policy analysis often relies upon budget details, as well as other statistical data. The effective emergency services administrator often must present these details to the public during public presentations.

Identify an issue in the emergency services which might require a policy analysis.
Discuss how budget details and statistics can be used to inform the public and lead to determining an appropriate outcome.
Reflect on your own skills relating to public presentations, budgeting, and the understanding of, and use of, statistics. What could you do to improve your own skills in these three areas? How could improving these skills aid in your career development?
