“Our priority is to keep our community safe and provide the highest standard of fire and medical service,” said Fire Chief David Endaya. “In the last few decades, we’ve seen service demands and call volume increase significantly. We’re looking for community input on how to prepare for future operational needs, apparatus upgrades, call volume increases, and personnel needs.”
