Message from the Chief:

9/13/2021 Many fire departments across the nation are being challenged by budget crisis, rising call volumes, personnel and equipment shortages, security issues, and the overall expectation to do more with less. Failing to manage these challenges with secured funding can leave the fire department and community vulnerable in undesirable events such as natural disasters or fires. The area served by Lakeview Fire has been pushed into increasing vulnerability due to the rising cost of equipment and personnel in the last 20 years. It is imperative to secure funding for the District for the future to ensure we can meet the needs of the community.
