NWFR commissioners discuss overtime pay, EMS planning
The North Whatcom Fire and Rescue (NWFR) Board of Fire Commissioners monthly meeting was last night (July 21), at the Blaine fire station on Odell Road. The commissioners' meeting is the third Thursday of every month. Last night's meeting covered a range of topics, so forgive the long and somewhat disjointed nature of this post. I predict at least one full story for next week's issue will find its way out the notes I took on this meeting.
