8A Wednesday, July 1, 2015 Feather River Bulletin BB, Stacy Fisher Staff Writer The West Almanor Fire Department District and the Prattville-Almanor Fire Protection District board of directors, together with Supervisor Sherrie Thrall, met June 25 to discuss'the implementation of a new one-year contract that spelled out terms for sharing resources and costs between the two fire departments. The contract, or Administrative Services Agreement, which expired June 30, affords both fire districts shared responsibilities and resources in joint emergency and fire fighting situations. The ASA states "Since 1993 the two agencies have formally engaged in mutual responses to emergencies in both fire districts, providing automatic support in cases of Elre suppression, medical responses or hazardous material incidents." During that period, West Almanor Fire has also provided training services and variable amounts of other administrative support, as specified in the GET PERSONALIZED DISH SERVICE AND GREAT TV OUR BEST PACKAGE AT OUR BEST PRICE All offers require 24-month commitment and credit qualification.

Prattville Fire District has determined that it is in need of expanded administrative support and seeks the ability to use the skill, expertise and shared time of the West Alna.anor Fire District to manage the day-to-day operations of Prattville Fire. Essentially, the ASA contract endeavors to clarify services between the districts and how the terms of the agreement were to be interpreted and services compensated between the fire departments. PrattviUe Fire District has a current annual budget of $33,000 a year and five firefighter volunteers, compared to West Almanor Fire's annual budget of $298,000 and 12 volunteers. West Almanor and Prattville Fire Chief Randy Fluke is the administrator for both firehouses. Thrall began discussion on new contract talks in light of the agreement's impending expiration. About 20 people attended the meeting of the board members as well. Thrall asked first that the two fire district board presidents, Phil Springfield of West Almanor Fire District, and Alan Ramsey of Prattville-Almanor Fire District, give their expectations of the outcome of the meeting. Springfield said he was looking forward to hearing the right to postpone.and reschedule the sale without further notice. The general pub- lic will have access to the Mobile Home Park premises for purposes related to this sale. This sale does not include any contents of the unit and the successful bidder is respon- sible for the lawful disposition of all remain- ing contents of the unit.

The park reserves from each of the board members so a dialogue could be started on contract talks. "My expectations of this meeting are, number one, to get to know the Prattville Fire Department board of directors, andto have a dialogue with you about the services that our community is providing to your district under our present service agreement," Springfield said. Springfield said that he hoped for "a very professional business discussion, that we get any issues between us on the table, and we deal with those issues so we can see if we should continue with the service agreement" or consider something new. "Quite frankly," Springfield continued, addressing the Prattville board, "we don't know at this point if you want to continue with the present agreement or not." Prattville Board President Alan Ramsay said that he hoped the two districts could come to a mutual understanding that will serve both communities on the West Shore of Almanor. "And find a future agreement that is acceptable to both departments," Ramsay said. West Almanor board Vice President Mike Willhoit said he saw value in continuing an agreement for medical and fire services between the two departments. "I hope any new agreement will be fair financially and operationally to both districts," Willhoit stated. "I'd like this to be the start of a long-term strategy for us to deal with West Shore emergency services in a reasonable manner." Willhoit also said in view of the changing demographics countywide, "we need to look to the future and redefine our relationship going forward." West Almanor board member Tom Fullerton said, "I'd like us to develop a new agreement that both parties are happy with. I'm sure we could all work together and come up with an equitable plan." Thrall said she was pleased to hear the spirit of cooperation at the meeting. "I've found that really all our fire departments back each other up when the need arises... God knows right now we're probably headed into the worst fire season that any of us have ever seen," Thrall said. She expressed her support in the importance of maintaining the relationship between the two fire districts whatever the eventual outcome of new contract talks. "And that's the process we're starting today," Thrall added. "So I'm here to support you any way that I can," she assured the board members." Thrall also mentioned the changing demographics of the county. "I know that our Local Agency Formation Commission has been doing municipal service reviews throughout Plumas County, and has determined that many of our fire departments are underfunded, and secondly what we see is that the population in the county has been decreasing by approximately two percent a year, at the same time the demographic is aging," Thrall said. Thrall said that as she looked at the various fire departments that are primarily staffed by volunteer firemen, she wondered who would want to fight fires when firefighters were heading into their 60s or older, "and I have a little bit of a concern about where do we get younger people to fill in." Addressing the subject of finding young people to fight fires, West Almanor board member Dale Knutson bemoaned losing the ability to attract younger volunteers. "And it's vital that we do so," Knutson insisted. Returning to the subject of the ASA contract, Thrall said she read the text as it now stands and saw it provided for a one-year extension and the requirement to renegotiate terms if so desired. Ken Wilson Jr., previous Prattville fire chief for 16 years, pointed out that the contract included a separate, binding mutual aid clause that required all f'ire departments countywide, wherever they're located throughout the basin, respond to any fire or emergency if they are needed and have adequate personnel regardless of budget restraints. Thrall raised a concern that as she studied the contract more closely, "we have the additional problem of both fire departments being in special districts, which legally are government agencies, and therefore the public funds that West Almanor Fire collects cannot really be used to supplement the cost of services they're providing Prattville Fire." Springfield acknowledged recognizing a state statute that says they can't give away portions of their budget as recompense to another agency, but he intimated the law remained vague and confusing. "We have had a lot of heated discussions about that because what we have failed to do is establish what our service costs are," Springfield said, versus the costs of Prattville's services. Call volume between districts is approximately 50/50, so the mutual aid clause in the contract is a wash when it comes to expenses, THrall suggested. Thrall and the board members agreed that the legal ramifications of sharing resources and money would have to be more closely explored before a new Contract was hammered out. Springfield asked the Prattville board members if what they were looking for were administrative services in particular. Answering affirmatively, Prattville Fire board member Wilson said they'd like to continue the administrative services that is now provided by Chief Fluke, proposing to spend $5,000 from their budget for Prattville Fire administrative costs. Dick Horn, a West Almanor board member, added, "I've been a volunteer for about six years. And as far as I'm concerned, Prattville has been part of our team. We depend on them, they depend on us, we've been training together, answering emergency calls together and so forth. I think what we have on the table is the administrative functions that (fire chief) Randy offers." Springfield praised the members for their collective support in dealing with the issue of a new contract. He affirmed that, "Prattville has always met their obligations through the contract agreement. They did provide monies from their budget when West Almanor Fire helped them in their area." The board members had a good dialogue, Springfield continued, "and I don't want to see a wedge driven between our two departments." Tentatively, it was agreed a new contract emphasize that Prattville Fire would pay for administrative service to handle things like paperwork and to decide what West Almanor Fire would charge Prattville, if anything, for future expenses. Any future agreement would necessarily include a required-by-law "mutual aid clause." Both boards will meet again in the coming weeks to finalize a decision on how they want to proceed on new contract negotiations.
