Chief needs everyone to sign up with COS (Mysiskiyous) for Thursday night trainings, which are considered a COS class. Each dept member who signs up generates funding for the County Fire Warden.

Be aware that MCFD is supported by two CSAs (County Service Areas). CSA 3 sets tax for EMS service only including ambulance, funding the dept at $25,000 per year. CSA 4 is same as ZIB, $40,000 per year for fire suppression in residential neighborhoods outside McCloud. All dept personnel are welcome to attend CSA meetings.
EmergencyReporting app - what we use to track all incidents. It ties to Rover, so be sure to use Rover to respond on tablets in dept vehicles. This is also how the dept tracks volunteer points for going out on incidents. The app has many other capabilities, and we will start using it to track training and apparatus checks.
New radio communication procedures are coming from dispatch, mostly affecting incident command
