LEHIGH FIRE ASSESSMENT-OC


RESPONSE TIMES WOULD BE MUCH SLOWER.

THAT'S THE WARNING TONIGHT FROM THE LEHIGH ACRES FIRE CHIEF.

NBC 2'S LAURA ROBERTS WAS AT THE PUBLIC MEETING WHERE HE LAID OUT THE STAKES FOR A PROPOSED FIRE ASSESSMENT FEE. Return to index of stories...


LEHIGH FIRE ASSESSMENT-BNR-PKG


Twelve hours into his 24 hour shift at the fire house -

Nick Classetti is just trying to do his job -

knowing that job is on the line.

Nick Classetti

Firefighter/EMT

10:50 10:52

I'm trying not to think about it, I'm staying positive

He's one of 54 Lehigh Acres firefighters and ems who could be laid off -

if voters don't approve a proposed fire assessment fee this November.

One of several cuts listed during a Lehigh Acres Fire Disrtict budget meeting

Asst Chief Ken Craft

Lehigh Acres Fire Control & Rescue District

01:24 01:30

You get down to the human factor of it is we're potentially gonna have to let a large number of personnel go

It would also mean closing two fire stations -

and switching to county ambulance services instead of local ambulances in Lehigh.

All together -

the assistant chief says this could increase response times from around 7 and a half minutes to more than 12 minutes.

Craft

59:44

If that fire assessment fee does not get passed by the VTERS they're going to see a dramatic difference in the level of service:49

In total - the proposed fire assessment fee would cost taxpayers around $292 dollars a year.

Classetti

11:10

We're gonna need their help to keep up this level of service for them:12

But it's a fee some say is too high -

because it's not just the fire district on a tight budget these days.

In Lehigh Acres, Laura Roberts, NBC2. Return to index of stories...
