Rick advised we haven’t been rejected as of yet by the Assistance to Firefighters grant for a water tender. Rick has spoken with the Division of Forestry concerning equipment. NDF will have an engine at the Honor Camp that will provide service for LCFD as well as Pioche Fire District. We will have direct access to this engine, but it will not be manned.

#5-FIRE REPORTING ASSISTANCE
Rick advised that he would like to use Emergency Reporting to assist with fire reporting pursuant to the NIMS requirements. The reporting is required by the federal government. We receive FEMA funds and if we are in noncompliance the funds will be removed. Emergency Reporting is an internet based system that has been used by other entities in the County. The cost is $250 for the set up and a monthly fee of $25.00. Rick will negotiate with them further. Tommy made a motion to approve, with the stipulation that Rick attempts to negotiate a better rate; seconded by Ed. All voted in favor.

Rick requested approval to attend “NFA Command and General Staff Functions for Local Incident Management Teams” training in Elko, NV on March 22-26, 2010. Tommy asked if it is possible to reimburse any of this training through Emergency Management. Phyllis advised the two grants for EM haven’t been approved. Tommy made a motion to approve; seconded by Bill. Ed requested that Rick be selective about the training he attends and asked that he make certain that he attends only those that are absolutely necessary. All voted in favor.
Paul called for public comment. There is none.
There being no further business for the Board to attend to, Ed made a motion to adjourn the meeting at 10:36; seconded by Bill. All voted in favor.
