Here are belated highlights from the May 13 meeting of the Wake County Fire Commission.

Isnt BLFD St.3 the old Six Forks station? If so, why isnt EMS cost-sharing the kitchen renovation, and why is there a kitchen renovation to begin with? From what I understand from a few BLFD personnel, they are off the clock for lunch and NOT a 24 hour coverage station?? So who uses the Kitchen? Corrections…???

It’s interesting how we’re able to obtain more detailed and timely information from Mike than from the official minutes of the fire commission (which are sent out JUST before the next meeting). Regardless, Mike’s information is more detailed and readable. Thanks Mike – for keeping everyone informed!!

Thanks for the thanks, AC. This particular blast of information is unusual in the level of detail, and directly due to relying upon an audio recording. It’s a bit harder in person. You can’t rewind and replay. Or I might be tuned out. Would like to do more, but time remains the constraint. Couple hours to listen and compose every two months— if I transcribed after every meeting from audio— is still time taken away from all the other stuff, blogging, photography, historical society, the newsletter, RFD research, general research, etc. It never ends.
