YOUR help is needed!

Please come to the Wilkins Township Community Center

Monday, June 5th, 6:30 - 8:30 pm.

Citizen Input Meetings Emergency Services Consulting International, Inc. (ESCI) has been hired by township leaders to evaluate the fire rescue system in Wilkins Township and to assist with the development of a long-range strategic plan for enhancement of the system.

In order to do that, it is critical that the citizens and businesses of the community have an opportunity to provide input on how they view the current system and what their expectations are moving forward. ESCI will facilitate two community input meetings of no more than two hours each on Friday, June 2 from 7:00 pm until 9:00 pm and on Monday, June 5 from 6:30 pm until 8:30 pm at the Township Community Center.

You are invited to attend whichever meeting is most convenient for you. The meetings will begin with a brief overview of the current fire services provided by the three volunteer fire companies serving the township from the respective chiefs.

After the overview, ESCI staff will guide attendees through a series of exercises that will assist with the development of the strategic plan. We value your input and respect the time that you will be giving us on this project. Below is a summary of the project you will be assisting with. Thank you in advance for your time.
