all of the above but maybe do a department spotlight each time so that others in the county can learn about departments from all over. Example I know very little about Rolesville FD

All above are great. I think monthly might be a bit overly optimistic…Quarterly would probably be better, then there would be more time for info to be acquired to deliver….like more fire/rescue incidents to report on…etc… I really like the department spotlight Apex Batt. Chief…how about whats going on with you guys at Fire Rescue? Roles and resposilities/expertise of each of your staff positions. What you guys expect from the fds after a fire, like dos and donts prior to investigations. Your short and/or long term goals/dreams for Wake County fire service etc…Training goals or delivery info on the training center etc…overall, a good idea.

1) Quarterly
2) Combination
3) Changing topics every publication. I would like a department spotlight as well. It would be a good opportunity to reveal unique resources that some departments have that could be utilized by others.
4) Interest/education
5) Special/New Hazards, Educational, Etc.
7) All public safety agencies in WC.
8) Promote countywide cooperation and response. Provide good information to increase interoperability and insure a seamless response. Good way to post SOG’s that can be applied Countywide. (not trying to start an argument about sog’s)
