The continued support of the voters provide the district with a stable funding source to protect citizens and property within the district. The district coverage Fairwood and Lake Desire areas. The original benefit charge was first authorized in 1990 and voters have consistently reauthorized its use in 1995, 2001, 2007 and now in 2013. Read more.
A Note From The Chief
On behalf of the dedicated men and women who serve you, thank you for the over whelming support to continue the Fire Benefit Charge. We sincerely appreciate your commitment and trust. This support comes with the responsibility to ensure we are being good stewards of your dollars to provide quality ser vice to the community.
I am excited as we prepare to move into the newly remodeled Station 17. For the last year the engine crew has lived in a small cramped apartment while the contractors have worked
I look forward to Station 17's Open House on June 22nd. Please plan on attending to meet the commissioners and firefighters who serve you and see the newly remodeled station.
Finally, In this issue we talk about stroke awareness. Please become familiar with the signs and symptoms of a stroke. Remember the earlier the intervention, the greater the possibility less damage will occur.
Sincerely, Chief Mark Peterson
