Cool Your Ashes before adding to your trash

We’d like to remind everyone that when you empty your fireplace ashes, do so into a metal can and allow them to sit in a safe outdoor space for a week before adding them to your trash. The home you save could be your own and your local trash service appreciates your efforts, too. ~ Indian Hills Fire Rescue

Fire District Collaboration and Merger Initiative – as reported within the Indian Hills Fire Protection District Board Meeting Minutes from November 2020:

The board decided to support Elk Creek and Inter-Canyon analysis of service provision analytics
which will generate a report that identifies the pros and cons and gaps to fill. After further
discussion, Director Marc Rosenberg made the motion to participate in the collaboration analysis with
costs up to $6,000. Director Kelley Lehman seconded the motion, which passed unanimously.

Up to $6,000 of tax payer funds to be used in collaboration analysis of merging Fire Districts.
