March 1
The next meeting of the Wake County Fire Commission is Thursday, March 22, at 7:00 p.m. The location is the Wake County EMS Training Facility, in the lower level of the Wake County Commons Building, 4011 Carya Drive. Please note the date change. The meeting has been postponed one week. We'll post an agenda and other documents as they're available.

Reader question, how many of the documents at the meeting were approved. I’ll check my notes when I am back in town to clarify, but I believe this is what happened…

The fire protection agreement was discussed in the context of a longer review period. The commission members felt they hadn’t had enough time for them, their Chiefs, their Boards, to review the document. Thus, they didn’t recommend adoption.

The rules of procedure were discussed, notably a couple particular points including alternates. I believe the majority of that document (but not the full thing, as-is, was adopted.)

The compensation model discussion lost me. I’ll need to check my notes on that one.

The revised contract was tabled due to the concerns Mike mentioned. The ROP’s were approved as amended without the removal of the fire service alternate. The compensation model was to be further reviewed by staff and the committee.
