04/16/07 174 W - + 13 - 9 Special Fire Commission Meeting Report

There was a special meeting of the Wake County Fire Commission this evening, called for the purpose of receiving a report on the evaluation and the application of closure criteria to Western Wake Station 2. Some background on this agenda item. Both the county and WWFD made presentations to the fire commission. The county sees both increased service and decreased cost by contracting Cary for a portion of Station 2's territory, then using Western Wake Station 1 to cover the remaining area. Western Wake sees downsides ranging from ISO impact to the loss of volunteer members. And though they don't see Station 2 staying open forever, they don't see right now as the right time, either. The meeting was intended as an information exchange, however, and the fate of the station was not hanging in the balance. Questions were asked after each presentation, the need for additional answers was acknowledged, and the meeting concluded with a vote to investigate the report in greater depth through committee. That's the short version, at least.

They’ll drag this one out till the walls crumble down on E Durham Rd. “The need for additional answers was acknowledged” interprets into “we all think it should happen but no one wants to take the heat for saying so”.
