The Sunrise Beach Fire Protection has announced several initiatives aimed at providing greater access to the public regarding the operations of the fire district. After launching a Facebook page in 2012, the District has now started a Twitter feed, @sbfpd is now placing the minutes of its board meetings on their website and is posting videos of its board meetings on its Youtube channel.
“We have a deep commitment to be transparent in all our dealings,” said Chief Dennis Reilly. “We are here to serve our community and I think it is absolutely vital for our citizens to know what we are doing. We feel that these initiatives will give the public greater access to the workings of the District.”
Reilly also hopes that the increase in transparency will strengthen the trust the community has in the department.
“We have received a tremendous amount of support from our citizens. This trust is something that must be earned every day. By providing timely updates to our public, and conducting as much of our business in the light of day, we hope to reinforce our commitment to be good neighbors, and trusted stewards of the public’s money," he said.
