Haleyville CIty Council Meeting

|January 3, 2008
The ladder truck, other new equipment and training were the key factors in securing a better fire protection rating for the Haleyville fire district according to Phillip Weaver, HFD Chief at the Thursday night city council meeting. The 4 is a very strong 4 and not too far away from a 3 rating according to Weaver. Obtaining a 3 rating will be the next objective of the fire department. Weaver stated only 6.9% of the fire departments in the country have a 4 rating.
This was good news at the council meeting where Mayor Albright commented that he had received a lot of criticism for the city's purchase of the ladder truck that cost over a half million dollars. The truck alone did not cause the new rating. The truck combined with other equipment purchases, adding an additional fire station at the airport, a training facility and lots of training, the new rating was well deserved. Albright suggested that everyone should check with their insurance company about the possible reduced rate.
Dean Morgan gave a great report on the thousands who came to view the Christmas lights at city lake.
