I think we have a great Fire Chief in Patrick Nelson and I have always been proud of our Bridgeport Fire Department. They do so many different things: Fire Suppression, Medical First Response, Hazardous Materials Response, Ice/Water Rescue, Technical Rescue, Public Education, Code Enforcement, Plan Review and Inspections. I don't have the yearly total of how many calls they respond to, but you can look at the list of weekly calls on the Bridgeport Township website http://www.bridgeportmi.org/
We expect them to be there to protect our lives and our property, and so the Bridgeport Township Government and the Bridgeport Township residents need to find a way to provide them with the funds they need to do that properly and safely.
Chief Nelson explains in excellent detail what the conditions are for the Fire Department and what their needs are. Please take the time to watch the video and listen to his presentation.
The meeting minutes are now up on Bridgeports website. They go into great detail of the things discussed. Building and Grounds Meeting Minutes
