Roxie Allen has resigned as the Fire District’s Administrative Assistant. We really appreciate her 10 years of service to the district. The hiring process to fill the position has begun.
At our Board meeting held October 19, our friend and colleague of seven years, Quentin Tolby, announced his resignation from the Forest Lakes Fire District Board of Directors. Quentin indicated he wants to spend more dedicated time with his wife and family.
Quentin’s term expires November 30, 2020. Therefore, it is incumbent on the Board to appoint a replacement to fill the remainder of his term and we are seeking Forest Lakes Community members who have interest to apply for this opportunity.
We have great news to report regarding our reclassification efforts with the Fire Insurance Service Organization. We have an improved fire protection classification of 4 that takes effect August 1st of 2015. The Fire District has been at a 5 for many years and now that our staffing model, training and records management, water delivery infrastructure, communications and relationships with our neighboring firefighting communities to include the Forest Service have improved, you have the opportunity to reduce your fire insurance premium. See the official letter below.
