i) Last call for services to be broadcast by county dispatch in the event of a firefighter death. WWSO provided a form/worksheet that needs to be completed for each separate request.
j) The WCFA 20’x30’ flag was torn while being used recently. The damage was completely accidental and out of the control of anyone present. Flag will need to be replaced as the repair is less than desirable. *update 7/25/12* Silver Lake fire Department will be taking care of the replacement flag costs. The old flag will be retired and be a permanent display flag in the case. The new flag will be used for display as needed during services.
k) Kevin Lohmeier from Infinity Bridge Corp has seen our door prop and would like us to allow him the use of the door to test a new forcible entry tool. This would include filming the training. He is also interested in purchasing a door to use as a demo door to test, sell and market his product. In no way are we marketing or endorsing his product at this time. It is in its test stages and not available for purchase.
l) In light of budgetary restrictions, Dues will be raised for the coming year beginning October 2012 to $300 per department. Banquet ticket fees will be raised $5 per ticket. All banquet ticket prices and dues information is on the Awards banquet page on the web site. Rate increases are covered in the by-laws.
m) Several pages have been added to the website regarding the smokehouse, memorial set, and banquet. Pages were added to ensure all member and non-member departments are aware of the restrictions or requirements for use of our equipment.
n) If any departments due to host a meeting yet this year need to change their hosting dates, Jennifer needs to be notified as soon as possible and no later than TWO weeks prior to the date being cancelled.
