Rodeo Hercules Fire District Hires Nine Firefighters
On July 1, 2014 the Rodeo Hercules Fire Protection District launched its Firefighter I Fire Academy. Nine firefighters will attend the Academy through September. Funding for these positions has been provided by a 2.5 million dollar FEMA SAFER (Staffing for Adequate Fire & Emergency Response) GRANT. This return of tax dollars to fund local fire protection will be utilized to reopen Fire Station 75, located at 326 Third St. in the community of Rodeo. Engine 75 was an integral part of our public safety services, providing advanced life support and firefighting crews throughout the District. The District anticipates re-opening Station 75 on October 1, 2014.
FIRE PROTECTION AND EMERGENCY RESPONSE SERVICES ASSESSMENT
At a Public Hearing held on June 11, 2014, the District’s Board of Directors announced the successful passage of the 2014 Fire Protection and Emergency Response Services Assessment. Final results can be found in Carol Keane & Associates tabulation results: Carol Keane & Associates Tabulation Results
