The Idyllwild Fire Protection District is a public agency that has regular publicly posted and open to the public board meetings at 6 p.m. on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month in the training room at the fire station.

Additionally, the district maintains regular office hours for the public to attend to business with the district.

The board of commissioners and the fire chief welcome the public to attend the board meetings; or schedule a meeting with the individual board members or the chief to discuss their concerns or questions about the IFPD.

The dry-run fee referenced in the letter above has been in place since 2009 and is regularly revisited and discussed by the IFPD board.

It is anticipated that the fee will again be considered at the time the proposed fiscal year 2013-2014 budget will be discussed in the coming months.

Please note that dry-run fees are not unique to IFPD and are utilized by many of the emergency medical service and ambulance providers in Riverside County and throughout California as well as nationally.
