Bozeman Fire Department preparing for city’s future after busy 2017


DEPARTMENT GAVE ITS 2017 ANNUAL
REPORT. MTN’S MEDERIOS BABB
REPORTS… IT WAS A BUSY YEAR
FOR FIRE CREWS. OUTCUE:SOC
“Tonight the Fire Department
reminisced on the past while
still looking
forward to the future.”
“Talking about making it better we are doing that today
Fire Chief Joshua Waldo said in
2017… Bozeman firefighters
responded to about 700 more 911 calls than the year
before. Theincrease in calls didn’t
stop thefire department from
improving overall. In April the Insurance Service
Office rated bozeman as a class
2 station… ranking it in the top three percent around the
country. “It is a huge draw. It allows us
to be attractive tobusinesses
to come
into a community that is not
only safe but has the ability to
get lower interest premiums.”
But the address wasn’t all
positive. Waldo said the fire
department needs to
get rid of its paging system,
work towards accreditation and a most importantly move into a new building. “The station needs work, let’s
just be quite honest. That is
why we are talking about a Bozeman Public Safety Facility. I would start by telling you
that the biggest thing that
affects us day to day, we are
out of space.”
“Whether or not the city will be
able to fund the Public Safety Facility now rests in
the voters hands as they go to
the polls in November. In
Bozeman, Mederios

THE THIRTY SEVEN MILLION DOLLAR FACILITY WOULD COST THE AVERAGE HOMEOWNER AROUND ONE HUNDRED AND
TWENTY DOLLARS
EACH YEAR IN PROPERTY TAXES.
