[8/15/16] Fire Commissioners Discuss Purchasing Fire And Rescue Boat

Posted in Uncategorized

Chelan Fire District 7 commissioners met last week for their regularly scheduled meeting- and the main topic of discussion was whether the district should purchase a Fire & Rescue boat.

Commissioner Russ Jones, says he would like to see the district move forward with the consideration, but not everyone on the board is fully convinced…

Chelan Fire District 7 Fire Chief, Tim Lemon, says the discussion topic isn’t a new one…

081516 Fire Rescue Boat 2 1:16 “…150 slips in the area.”

Commissioner Jones says that currently, Chelan County Sheriff’s Office does have two boats on the lake, but Jones says he has concerns regarding availability…

And, of course, Jones admits, you can’t discuss something such as a new Fire & Rescue Boat without discussing the price tag that comes along with it…
