Fire Chief Report-

There was one call this month. The Department aided the Granby Fire Department in
containing and extinguishing the fire at the Frontier Motel. Approximately the middle of
January we received a newly built 1972 Forest Service truck. This truck replaced the
older truck the Forest Service lets us use. Chief White demonstrated our new department
web site.
The Department has purchased a new ID maker.
The Department discussed responding to EMS calls. The volunteers expressed some
interest. They feel like they could possibly make a difference as far as being the first on
scene and administering life saving actions if needed. The other thing discussed was the
public perception. Often times the public expects the fire department to respond to any
type of emergency-and doesn’t understand it when they aren’t there. The officers met
with Ray Jennings, the head of EMS. He is supportive of our responding to those calls.
The Department would act as an assist to the EMS. EMS would provide the training. It
would probably entail a CPR class (which many of the volunteers already have) and a
HPPA training. There may be some other things covered. There would be an optional
first responder qualification that would be a 40 hour class. No one would exceed their
training during an emergency-they would only administer aid in what they have been
