Lake Dillon Fire seeking community input
Lake Dillon Fire-Rescue is conducting a community survey over the next month to gauge residents’ priorities for the department and their own fire-safety needs.
Part of the department’s strategic-planning process, the short survey asks questions ranging from whether they have working smoke detectors and are prepared for a wildfire evacuation to their awareness of the services the department offers.
“Periodically, we like to get a good measure of how our residents view the department and what their needs are to protect themselves, their families and their property from fire,” said Lake Dillon Fire Chief Dave Parmley.
Over the next month or so, firefighters on several occasions will set up tables outside City Market and Lowe’s in Silverthorne and Safeway and Wal-Mart in Frisco, offering free blood-pressure checks and fire-safety information in addition to administering the confidential surveys.
Additionally, the survey is available online at www.ldfr.org. Fire department officials ask that any resident, business owner or property owner within the Lake Dillon Fire Protection District who is interested in fire safety in the community take a few moments to fill out the survey and offer thoughts.
