Media Coverage: ECCFPD Board Meeting

With so many articles going up right now on tonight’s board meeting, I thought I’d share them as they come in. I’ve added a few more to the list while I noticed some of the articles have added information.

    It is too bad that this is where we are. It will take a lot of work to bring the service levels back up. Hopefully all those with the great ideas, put in the effort. For now we will be busy trying to cover 238 square miles and 105,000 people with nine firefighters.

      Vince you did what was right considering the options. I don’t hold you accountable one bit. I’ve read your many comments and posts over the last few weeks and you are one person who people need to hear from more often.

  2. Bob says:

    Vince, I know it’s asking for the impossible, but I hope residents will remember should they need emergency response that slow response times are the result of the hand you were dealt. Easy for me to say sitting here not needing the services right now.

    People have taken public safety for granted here and are about to learn a hard lesson, I fear.
