News Release - Fire Service Task Force Final Report

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Issued: July 28, 2017

RELEASE OF CITY OF ROSSLAND’S FIRE AND EMERGENCY SERVICES REVIEW TASK FORCE’S FINAL REPORT


As the current costs of fire protection and emergency services continue to rise, Council for the City of Rossland wanted to explore new alternatives and/or offer suggestions to the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) for potential improvements for the provision of these services, the City struck the Fire Service and Emergency Services Review Task Force in March 2016.

The intent of this task force was to review the existing fire and emergency services delivered to the City by the RDKB through the Kootenay Boundary Regional Fire Rescue (KBRFR) and to research other possible alternative service delivery models of providing a similarly-scaled service while ensuring the future safety of our community was sustained. The final report created by the Task Force was reviewed extensively by Council and forwarded on to the RDKB for discussion at the East End Services Committee.
