In an effort to reduce response times from around 20 minutes to 5 minutes during the daytime hours, the Board of Directors proposed a plan that would put 2 firefighter/EMT’s in the headquarters station. The taxpayers rejected the idea of a tax increase to pay for the firefighters and create administrative staff positions to oversee the upgraded services.
Our district will continue to experience delays during the daytime hours due to lack of staffing. The Board of Directors is committed to continue to look at alternative ways to reduce the time it takes to get help to your front door when you dial 911. The public is always welcome to share their ideas and concerns. Reach out to a Board member or attend a monthly Board meeting to learn more.
