Keystone Valley Regional Fire District to conduct an in-depth planning study

PARKESBURG, Pa.— Keystone Valley Regional Fire District has engaged Municipal Resources Inc., of Meredith, New Hampshire, to perform an Emergency Services study. The purpose of the study is to perform a risk and needs assessment of the four Municipalities that comprise the District, evaluate current and future fire, rescue and ambulance service delivery, and assist in developing a 5, 10 and 15-year strategic plan to assure effective, efficient, and fiscally responsible emergency services to the customers of the District and its member municipalities.

The cost of the study is $23,950.00 and will take approximately 6 months to complete. The finances were made possible through KVRFD’s budgeting process, and approved unanimously at its March public meeting.

The study’s final report will be made available and presented to the public through a series of town hall meetings, the District website, and through each member municipality of the District.

FREE TREES FOR STREAMSIDE PLANTINGS AVAILABLE!

Planting trees along our local streams and creeks can offer significant benefits that improve water quality,
reduce the risk of flooding and erosion, provide valuable habitat for wildlife, and support recreational opportunities.
Tree planting events also help foster a strong community commitment and connection to the land. If you know of municipal
lands or property protected by a conservation easement that may benefit from streamside tree plantings,
Brandywine Conservancy has the trees, expertise, and a strong volunteer community to facilitate tree plantings in our area.
For more information, please contact Rob Daniels at 610-388-8124 or rdaniels@brandywine.org.
