DVFA Parade Questionnaire

DVFA President Rich Toulson formed a committee to look into the DVFA Annual Parade to improve participation from the fire companies and more participation from the public.

The committee met and developed a questionnaire for the members of the Delaware Fire Service to review and answer. The committee is asking for all responses and any additional information to be turned in on or before May 1, 2014.

The form has been formatted to allow you to fill it out, save it on your computer and then attach it in an email to wpoppe@dcfc15.com.

Special Thank You to KCVFA Secretary Pablo Reyes for formatting the form to allow you to fill it out.

2014 Task Force on the Funding of Ambulance and EMS Services in Delaware
The Ambulance and EMS Funding Task Force (the "Task Force") was established by the 147th Delaware General Assembly in House Bill No. 215 (the "FY 2014 Grants-In Aid Act”). In authorizing the Task Force, the General Assembly recognized that the State of Delaware "has an obligation to establish a mechanism for funding Ambulance and EMS service . . . ." To that end, the purpose of the Task Force is to study and "develop the methodology for reimbursement of such services, across the state . . . ." This Report summarizes the work of the Task Force. The members of the Task Force discharged their duties over the course of six meetings. The members worked diligently, in good faith, and with the goal of finding a solution to a looming fiscal crisis that threatens to disrupt the system by which basic ambulance and EMS service is provided throughout the State of Delaware. By some accounts, the public may begin to see diminished ambulance service in as little as 8 to 12 months, if steps are not taken promptly to meet the funding need. In the pages that follow, the findings and recommendations of the Task Force are set forth and its proceedings are described. The Task Force Chair and Co-Chairs wish to thank each and every member of the Task Force for their service, and for a job well done. The Chair and Co-Chairs also wish to recognize and thank Daniel P. Burris, Sr., President of the New Castle County Volunteer Firefighter’s Association, for his tireless support. While Mr. Burris was not an official member of the Task Force, he attended all of its meetings and provided invaluable assistance, information and support. It will be the responsibility of our elected and appointed officials, in partnership with the ambulance and EMS service providers for the State of Delaware, to respond to the fiscal challenges that currently confront the system.

Sen. Bruce C. Ennis, Chair Rep. William J. Carson, Co-Chair C. Malcolm Cochran, Co-Chair.
