We currently have $148 as our annual residential fee unit and seek approval from the Gallatin County Commission to approve a new annual residential fee unit of $250. Our current fee structure has been in place since 2012.
Summer is a difficult time to collect blood yet the need remains constant because of increased rates of trauma during the summer season. Unfortunately blood donations are currently being distributed to hospitals faster than donations are coming in and more donations are needed to replenish our blood supply. Fort Ellis Fire Department has teamed up with the American Red Cross to help!
The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning for Gallatin County tomorrow, noon to 9pm (update: extended to 6 am on Saturday), indicating that any fire that starts is likely to become a serious event. Mid-August is traditionally the beginning of the fire season in Gallatin County, and we have already had our first fire, near Clarkston. Please be extremely careful about fires until we get substantial amounts of rain or snow.
This spring, Fort Ellis Fire/Rescue received an extremely generous donation from FLIR, the world’s largest commercial company specializing in the design and production of infared and thermal imaging cameras and technology.
