Effective Response Times (ERF) refers to all personnel and equipment required to “mitigate critical tasks associated with the emergency incident.” A total average response time for high risk fires was 22 minutes, 38 seconds in order to achieve ERF status. The benchmark is 10 minutes, 20 seconds. 

Similarly, EMS response times averaged 15 minutes, 23 seconds in 2016, and the benchmark is 10 minutes.

Availability poses a challenge to response times.
