The Policy Forum recently released an analysis of the impact of the consolidation of five independent fire departments into the North Shore Fire Deparment 20 years after it occurred. Titled "Come Together: An Analysis of fire department consolidation in Milwaukee County's North Shore," the report concludes that service quality has improved significantly for the area served, while cost savings averaging $250,000 per year are being realized.
