Fire and Emergency Medical Services Study

Release Date: 
01/28/2014

Pendleton Fire and Ambulance (PFA). The City of Pendleton is seeking the services of a fire and emergency medical services consultant to produce a study that would examine ways to save money or increase revenue. Several ideas have been considered by the City Council as being potentially viable: privatization of the ambulance, creation of a fire district, consolidation with other agencies, operational changes, and/or increasing fees. Attached you will find a Request for Proposal, to which we invite your response. We encourage you to forward this correspondence on to peers who may be interested in responding as well. This cover letter is a part of the request for proposal.

Reward Offer Increased

There is a $1,500 reward being offered for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the person or persons responsible for the fire at Pioneer Park on NW 4th and Despain.
