The Woodland Police Department will provide law enforcement services in the Plan Area. The Department currently services the community through a four police beat deployment model. With the geographic expansion of the city as the General Plan Growth areas build out, up to two additional police beats are planned to be added to provide sufficient patrol resources and response times. The existing Police Station and Administration building at Lincoln Avenue and 6th Street is sufficiently sized to provide Police service levels through build out of the Plan Area. The Police Department also provides parking enforcement services for the community. With the mixed use and denser nature of the project, the need for permit parking and time parking zones is likely. In the event this occurs, use of new technologies will be utilized to reduce department resources needed for monitoring and enforcement.
The project site is within the jurisdiction of the Woodland Fire Department which provides fire protection services and emergency medical services within the City and to unincorporated areas in the vicinity. The nearest station to the Plan Area is Station Three located at 1550 Springlake Court, on the east side of SR 113, approximately 2 miles north of the Plan Area. The City recently underwent an Insurance Services Office (ISO) rating review and improved to a level two rating. ISO ratings range from 1-10 with one indicating excellent service and ten indicating minimal or no protection. ISO ratings assess a range of fire safety factors including; firefighting personnel, equipment, water infrastructure, and response times. The City staffs 3 fire stations, with a minimum of 13 personnel on duty per day. This provides enough personnel to meet the National Fire Protection Association’s Standard 1910 for residential structure fire responses. The City utilizes robust automatic aid agreements with neighboring jurisdictions to ensure sufficient firefighting personnel arrive at a fire in a commercial building. The City has a maximum "first response" standard of four minutes, 90% of the time. Currently, portions of the southeast area do not fall within this response time standard due to the distance been the current Fire Station 3 location, and the most southern areas of the Spring Lake development. The City plans to relocate Fire Station Three to the former Willow Spring Elementary school site, which is located at the northwest corner of Bourn Drive and Gibson Road. The future Fire Station Three, which will continue to serve the Plan Area, will be located approximately one-half mile north of the Plan Area, and will ensure that the southeast area, including the Tech Park, would fall within the four minute response time standard.
Additionally, Yolo County maintains an agreement with American Medical Response (AMR) to provide advanced life support (ALS) transport services to the entire County, including the City of Woodland and the Plan Area. AMR maintains a response time standard of 8 minutes, 90% of the time for any incorporated area within the County.
