SPOFR Fire Chief Brad Martin will attend the Newport Levy Question and Answer Meeting on Monday, October 30th at 10 AM.

The meeting will be at City Hall at S 200 Washington Street. Chief Martin wrote a letter to the Miner expressing his views as attached below.

This letter was published in The Miner this week by Chief Martin.

“The intent of this letter is to support the Newport Fire Levy. The passing of the levy is vital to the sustainability of both Fire and EMS services in the City of Newport. Not only do the citizens of Newport deserve a proactive Fire Department for response, public education and maintenance and potential improvements on insurance ratings but the comfort of knowing that Paramedics and EMTs will be en route to your home during medical emergencies. The current ambulance service has been doing a great job in serving Newport and the outlying areas, however, they plan on closing their doors soon. This Levy will help continue both fire prevention and support Emergency Medical Response.

I encourage you to vote “YES” on November 7th.”
