Proposed Ballot Language: PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO SECTION 5.6 OF THE ADRIAN CITY CHARTER-FILLING OF VACANCIES
Adrian Fire Department is a member of the Lenawee County Technical Rescue Team and houses the county equipment cache. We also have a cooperative agreement with Michigan Region 1 USAR which brings equipment and expertise from Livingston, Jackson, Lenawee, and Ingham Counties together for training, equipment, and emergency response.
Region 1 USAR teams work with existing fire departments to provide rescue operations on a day-to-day basis for building collapse, trench or excavation failure, confined space rescue, and high angle rescue from buildings, construction sites or natural features. Being part of the regional rescue organization, resources from other departments can be called upon in the event of a disaster.
Chief Aric Massingill is A.F.D.’s representative in the regional organization.
