Ensure the District’s Tax Rate Stays Low
Local taxpayers need to be aware of efforts underway to raise your fire taxes! The Greater Naples Fire Board recently approved a motion to place a significant tax increase on the ballot. I was the lone dissenting vote.
Maintain and Improve Response Time
Response time is a crucial predictor of the eventual success of a responding agency to mitigate loss of life, serious injury, fire losses, and damage to the environment that is caused during emergencies.
Cost Savings by Consolidating Services
The Greater Naples Fire District, along with our neighboring North Collier Fire District encompass a huge geographic area. Together we provide fire rescue services to the vast majority of the population of Collier County.
Enhanced/Improve Personnel Training
The operations of a fire rescue agency are highly complex. Structure fires, motor vehicle and boating accidents, drownings, medical emergencies, HAZMAT incidents, wildfires, high angle rescue, industrial accidents and more.
