Dear OVFR Resident,
I wanted to wish you and your family a safe and happy Thanksgiving. We would like to thank all the voters for overwhelmingly passing our M&O levy. We received more votes than ever before. The final count is 2221 “yes” votes and 66.76% in favor of the measure.
OVFR is committed to providing you high quality service every day. We are still on track to run more calls in 2017 than any previous year; over 2000 calls for service.
In 2018 we will still be working on completing our strategic plan goals. Those goals include:
- Long term solution to headquarters station
- Stabilize the Fire levy
- Stabilize the EMS levy
- Increase staffing to address rising call volumes
- Replenish reserves
- Start an apparatus replacement plan
- Explore opportunities with our partner agencies
As always, if you have questions or concerns, please come see me at the fire station. Additionally, fire commissioner meetings are generally the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of the month. The schedule is posted below.
Again, thank you for your support of your fire department.
Zane Gibson, Fire Chief
