- Fire/EMS Operations Study Presentation
Kent Greene from ESCI was in Whitewater on Thursday of this week to provide us with a presentation on the operations study and answer any questions regarding the report. The presentation was held in Timmerman Auditorium in Hyland Hall on campus. Kent presented key findings to the group in attendance, but did not specifically review the actual recommendations provided in the report. This was a disappointment to many in attendance. The report is available on the City’s website at the following link: http://www.whitewater-wi.gov/multimedia/public-service-announcements/2583-fire-and-emergency-medical-services-operations-evaluation. The Task Force will be meeting Monday evening on the second floor of City Hall at 6:00pm to discuss the report and next steps in the project.
