Letter: ESD board isn’t working with EMS
ESD No. 2 held a meeting May 3 and they have now made the decision to not use the current fire and EMS coverage provided by Eagle Creek Volunteer Emergency Services (ECVES). They are planning to move the fire and EMS service to the subdivision lived in by the president of ESD 2. That will mean the fire and EMS service wil no longer be in a centralized location within the district, but on the end closest to the president’s property. Everyone not near his area will find a significant increase in the fire and EMS response times, which will result in increased insurance premiums. Obviously, the ESD board had no intention of working in conjunction with the ECVES, which has been the primary service provider for 20 years.
The ESD board is failing to work with the ECVES, even after the county commissioners had a meeting to discuss the issues with EMS service and the failure of the ESD board to provide emergency medical service coverage to the ESD 2 district. The county commissioners were adamant of the two entities working together to support the community. It is now apparent the ESD 2 board is only taking care of themselves.
