Fire Department Mergers

Jefferson County Fire

Metro Louisville has 18 fire departments serving the suburban fire districts.  The Dixie Suburban Fire Protection District is looking to merge with Pleasure Ridge Park FPD.

I believe more departments in the suburban fire district need to look at merger. Put down your egos, and look at how it can serve your stakeholders.

Here is an article about another Fire Protection District in trouble.

Here is my opinion on merger in Metro Louisville.

The personal stories are different. Photography, flying, aviation, hiking, camping, travel, geocaching, amateur radio are a few of my hobbies.
