The contract between the Lake Ridge Fire Department and Lake Ridge Fire Protection District is due to expire on December 31, 2017 @ 11:59 p.m.
The Community needs to understand that effective January 1, 2018 @ 12:00 a.m., unless the District acts in the citizens' interests, there may be a different fire department or no fire department to respond to emergency calls within the Township.
If a different department takes over the Township fire service, your ISO (Insurance Services Office) rating will change and your insurance rate will likely go up substantially.
The Department intends to move into the new building and would like to continue to provide the much-needed protection services to the community; however, the District is standing in the way of that continued service.
The Lake Ridge Volunteer Fire Department has been responding to fire calls for over 30 years in the Township and would like to continue to do so. We are asking for your assistance.
The Lake Ridge Fire Protection District wants to dismantle LRVFD. Take over operations. They would own all the Equipment. Which would leave the firemen with no say. The equipment that is used is Community equipment not private owned. They want to take over pay. There are 3,000 plus homes and businesses in our community. Our community is just making it. We cannot afford a full-time fire department.
The Lake Ridge Volunteer Fire Department has been here for over 30 years. Some of our Firemen are generations that have stayed and continue to serve our community. Fathers, Uncles, Sons, Current and Future Firefighters. They want to stay.
WE NEED OUR FIRE DEPARTMENT, WITHOUT IT OUR COMMUNITY IS SHORT HANDED IN EVERYTHING!! ALSO OTHER FIRE DEPARTMENTS WILL BE STRETCHED TO THIN TO HELP. OUR FIRE DEPARTMENT HELPS OTHERS AND OTHERS HELP US.
