Last year the Bald Hills Fire Department responded to over 400 emergencies. We are a volunteer department responding at all times of the day or night to assist our neighbors in the Bald Hills. We authorize our fully trained members to take trucks home to respond directly to calls, improving response times. In spite of the recession, by careful planning and budgeting, the Department acquired four brush/rescue trucks, an ambulance, a new water tender, a second tender about to enter service, and two older but reliable fire engines. We maintain a large capital reserve. This year we paid off our equipment bond which will lower your taxes. We have improved our rating with the Fire Rating Bureau, which lowers insurance premiums. The Fire Department has grown from a few members when I was elected to more than thirty now. Most of the credit for our successes and accomplishments goes to our dedicated members who volunteer their time so generously. Their contributions are the indispensable ingredient in our fine level of service. Our Department and I will continue working hard to train, equip, attract and retain good volunteers. I would be honored by your vote to continue this work.

Ballots available beginning October 14, 2015.
