2023 Fire Service Predictions

Predictions for fire departments in the new year

Our ESO fire service experts looked at emerging trends and predictions fire departments should prepare for in the new year.

Two heads are better than one, they say. When it comes to planning for the year ahead, we think a whole team and millions of data points are even better. That’s exactly what the ESO fire service technology and research teams have used to form the 2023 ESO Fire Service Predictions.

Our Predictions for the New Year

With economic challenges looming and a still-uncertain supply chain, fire departments will have to keep navigating staffing, budget, and equipment challenges. In our report, ESO experts discuss four key trends that fire departments should anticipate and prepare for in 2023:

  • Budget constraints loom on the horizon. 
  • Staffing will continue to be a challenge.   
  • Equipment availability will be impacted by the ongoing global supply chain crisis. 
  • Departments will need to rely on technology.
