KINGMAN – The Kingman Fire Department is looking for community feedback and invites the public to their yearly community stakeholders strategic planning sessions May 3.
The first planning session was held in June when KFD officials announced the addition of a rapid response vehicle that will go into service July 1. The smaller vehicle will be based out of Station No. 2 and deliver medical responses. It won’t be as bulky or gas-guzzling as the larger fire trucks.
“We are moving forward on that,” said KFD Chief Jake Rhoades.
KFD administrator Kimberly McDade said invitations were sent to local businesses to get input on how the fire department is doing its job and what it can do to better serve the community.
“It’s just kind of an overview of the department,” Rhoades said. After the department overview, he’ll open up the sessions to public comment.
The sessions are open to the public, but you can still RSVP KFD administrator Kimberly McDade at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 928-753-2891.
There will be two sessions, 9-10 a.m. and 7-8 p.m., at Kingman Regional Medical Center Hualapai Mountain Campus, 3601 Santa Rosa Dr. Light refreshments and snacks will be available.
