From the NPFD:
2017 was North Park Fire Protection District’s busiest year ever. We responded to 1,750 requests for service for the year. This is an increase of 193 calls over 2016’s total, and will only continue to grow as we gain an assisted living facility in our district in the next year and our community demographic ages.
We continue to try to serve our community’s increasing demands for service with a tax income that is less than we were bringing in from past years. In fact, we’re the busiest department in Winnebago County that doesn’t rely on paid staffing 24/7 to insure calls for service are answered.
We continue to be blessed by dedicated and very capable volunteer personnel that insure calls on nights and weekends are answered immediately as they staff a firehouse overnight. These amazing individuals provide a valuable and priceless service, and we can’t thank them enough for what they do.
Huge shout out to the department for keeping the citizens safe and doing an awesome job! Keep up the great work!!! ~ Rickie Traeger
