TrailMark Board of Directors Meeting Minutes – July 21 and Sept. 15, 2015

Obviously there are concerns with emergency response times at TrailMark as indicted in the excerpt from their Board of Directors Meeting Minutes of Sept. 15, 2015.  If you have ever had to call 911 you know how stressful it is to wait for help to arrive.  I have and each minute seems like an eternity.
What is important about the following information is the fact that TrailMark residents are being told about a solution to their problem with response times but council has not had a single public meeting on the subject.  It is obvious that business is taking place outside of the council meetings and outside of the public’s view and without the support of the majority of the council.
From their minutes July 21, 2015:

Emergency Response Times in TrailMark: Director Russell relayed Director Tolle’s report for May and June. During the two months, response times ranged from 8-12 minutes. There is a possibility that the City of Littleton may terminate their IGA with West Metro Fire in the spring of 2016.  

From their minutes Sept. 15, 2015:

 Emergency Response Times in TrailMark – Director Tolle reported that in July there were five calls for service with response times ranging from 7:50-12:53 minutes.  For August, there are two calls ranging from 11:25-17:32 minutes.  Long response times seem to begin with long dispatch times due to confusion about TrailMark’s location and station responsibility.  Beginning in April 2016, fire coverage for TrailMark will return to Littleton Fire #16.  The Board will continue to monitor response times and advocate on behalf of TrailMark residents.
