On behalf of Boles FPD, we would like to thank our residents for passing Proposition Safety last April. Due to your generosity, we are able to hire twelve additional full-time career firefighters and will be able to bring on additional reserve firefighters.
As of January 22, 2017 we were able to staff all 4 stations with 2 members 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. With the additional staffing, we will cut initial response time’s district wide.
With hiring additional career and reserve firefighters, many changes have taken place. We started a new tradition within our organization. We hosted our first pinning ceremony on February 15, 2017. During that presentation, 24 received new badges.
Jace Backs, Joe Fleming, Tyler Pruessner, Adam Schmitt, Nick Simpson, and Elizabeth Williams
