Fire Services: Many Districts, Tight funding

  Fire protection across Sonoma County is provided by 5 city fire departments plus 19 other independent fire districts, including 15 volunteer departments.

  That provides a lot of cherished local control, but financially it’s a model carried over from the last century that may no longer be viable today.  A the direction of the county Board of Supervisors, a series of 10 public meetings to discuss the future of local fire services are being held at fire stations throughout the county.  Here’s what is expected to come out of all that.

The first of these community meetings on Fire Services was held in Bodega last night; the next ones happen on Monday and Tuesday in Geyserville and Sonoma, and they continue through Nov., 13 in Monte Rio. See the full schedule posted here.
