Doug will be meeting with the County board tomorrow to ask them to accept the D & D bid on radios. This will be for battery chargers handhelds and mobiles.

Dan Wright says that National Fire Academy enrollment ends on 6/30 for the next semester so he should have the vacancies left open in classes about a month after that.

Phil Nalley says that the audit is coming up in the next month for the Fire Service grant. They would like help paying it from each department. Doug will also bring this up to the County Board since they were going to pay for part of the radio system and didn't have to. Palmyra now has 3 of our 800 radios that they got through a Forest Service grant.

Doug has been looking at Firths Firehouse software reporting program. He thinks a Health and Human service grant might fund these for him to purchase them for us. Doug also got his bid approved for the new Command post.

Bennet has a new 3500 Gallon tanker. Brian Johnson from Waverly wanted to send some comments since he wasn't able to attend. With all the critical incidents they have had recently he wanted to thank everyone for the job they did. He also wanted to says to be sure and get your CISD going as soon as possible so your people get the maximum benefit from it.



Motion to adjourn at 2033
