Our Fire District must continue to protect the residents we serve by ensuring we have highly trained firefighting staff whom are well equipped and prepared to respond to all emergencies. We must continue to improve our ability to react to and contain wildland fires, maintain our local fire protection efforts and emergency medical services as well as our 9-1-1 response times.
To achieve these goals, we need to ensure our staff has state-of-the-art equipment, training and Personal Protection Equipment (PPEs) to enable a safe and rapid response to all emergencies.
We must also ensure the long-term health of our firefighter staff. I support efforts to protect the health of our firefighters through advance cancer screenings and other health support related to the unique dangers of the job.
