Firefighters were out in the community last night speaking with our local village council. With the changes to the makeup of the board of trustees, we wanted to open lines of communication, provide an opportunity for them to ask questions of our operations, and to let them know of our concern of the rumor of the discussion of a merger (with EMS) that are out in the community.
We have been able to answer a great number of questions over the last month or so as our members have been attending local meetings. Both public and elected officials have been active in numerous conversations.
Our doors are open, this is YOUR fire department and we enjoy serving this community.
