Mayor Allender Requests Fire Department Study

Mayor Steve Allender requested over $62,500 to hire consultants to analyze the Rapid City Fire Department, reports the Rapid City Journal.  This amount does not include travel costs for the consultants.  Acting Fire Chief Rod Seals indicated the funds may come from the Wildland Fire Budget.

The objective would be to study the workloads, response times, communication, among other factors.  Mayor Allender says the process should take 105-135 days and will help determine best practices.
