What will happen now that the election is over?
In 2019, the directors of Byers Fire considered measures for the November ballot. The community supported Byers Fire and our future and passed these measures.
Due to COIVD19, Byers has chosen to wait on updates to our station and the hiring of 2 firefighter-paramedics, so that our resources can focus on the current pandemic and serving our community.
In 2021, Byers Fire will begin taking bids and, hopefully beginning, construction on an addition to our station that will include sleeping quarters for our crews. Byers Fire is currently in Phase 1 of our building process, we are currently developing plans for our new building and will be opening the process to bidding (Phase 2) shortly. In addition, we will begin the hiring process of 2 firefighter-paramedics. This will allow Byers to transition to 24-hour coverage.
We are excited about these changes and the improvement in services for the community we call home.
If you have questions about the future of Byers Fire, please stop by Station 71 or contact Chief Disher.
