McLendon-Chisholm Fire Department drafts new service contract

(MCLENDON-CHISHOLM, TX — November, 27, 2017) The McLendon-Chisholm Volunteer Fire Department (MCVFD) recently submitted a fire service contract for consideration by the McLendon-Chisholm City Council. The contract outlines a comprehensive plan to provide the city with emergency services and fire response in 2018 and is based on its June 2017 budget request to the city.

“For over forty years, the MCVFD has entered into an annual contract with the City of McLendon-Chisholm to provide fire protection,” Chief Robert Jones said. “Since that time, the MCVFD has been committed to working with city leaders and the residents of McLendon-Chisholm to provide the highest quality of emergency services at the lowest possible cost to the taxpayers.”

Since 2014 the MCVFD has staffed its primary station with two firefighters during peak times of the day in an effort to reduce response times and enhance public safety.  To ensure that all citizens of McLendon-Chisholm have fire protection on January 1, 2018, the MCVFD has drafted a contract for the city council’s consideration.

“MCVFD membership has made every effort to work with the Mayor, City Council and City Staff to finalize an agreement, that serves in the best interest of the citizens of McLendon-Chisholm,“ Jones said.

Incorporated in 1974, the McLendon-Chisholm Volunteer Fire Department (MCVFD), is a 501(c)(4) non-profit corporation committed to providing the highest levels of fire safety, and first response emergency medical services to the people and property within the City of McLendon-Chisholm and Southern Rockwall County.  The MCVFD’s district covers over 32 square miles of Rockwall County, which makes it the largest district by area of the five fire departments covering Rockwall County. By agreement, the MCVFD responds to all emergency dispatch response calls by the Rockwall County Sheriff’s Department that centrally manages emergency response calls. The MCVFD also provides mutual aid to the surrounding fire departments of Rockwall, Heath, Fate, Royse City, Forney, Terrell and Union Valley.
