The Fire Dept will circulate Agreements for execution by each of the municipalities. The primary contacts for each municipality were provided.
The Fire Dept is hosting Kid's Fire Prevention Night on Friday, October 12th, at 6:00 pm.
The Fire Dept believes consolidation in the future is inevitable. They have approached the topic with St. Cloud Fire Dept. There have been no further discussions.
Also, eventually the volunteer departments will have to go to paid full-time firefighters during the daytime hours. It is expected that when this happens consolidation will be inevitable. The Dept is using an electronic calendar system that firefighters use to log in their vacations, etc so that the Chief knows who is not available at any given time.
The meeting adjourned at 8:18 pm.
