Thanks to everyone who responded to the Board of Director’s request for input regarding the TCCA acquiring a used fire truck. We received approximately 25 total responses, with many of them expressing concerns regarding TCCA liability. In addition, many respondents were hesitant to invest in an older vehicle, with the potential for existing and ongoing maintenance issues. Concerns were also stated about our ability to have adequate personnel – both in number and in training – to operate the truck.
On the positive side, we did receive suggestions to pursue cooperation with Rainbow and Murdy subdivisions in developing a south Taylor Park volunteer fire department. Anyone interested in pursuing this concept should contact the Board of Directors, as we hope to get several volunteers to form a committee and make further investigations and inquiries. We have several contacts in the existing Gunnison County Volunteer Fire Department to assist in this process.
After consideration of all input, the Board decided to terminate any further evaluation for the acquisition of a fire truck, and the truck owner was notified accordingly. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Board of Directors.
