○ Bob will procure a first aid kit for Structure One
○ Bob will go through the brush truck wish list and combine info from the supplemental training being conducted on August 10th


Internet/Web Page Report:

Chick contacted Qwest to get DSL pricing. Adding the service would add $22 to $27 per month depending upon speed. Cutthroat's lower speed was quoted at $37 per month and is equivalent to the $22 service from Qwest. Cutthroat did not have a faster equivalent. Chick recommended and it was generally agreed that Clancy VFD not pursue the Internet at this time because of the lack of a return on investment.


Truck Committee Report:

Bill found a GSA Auction with a 1999 Ford Brush Truck available. It was generally agreed that members would keep an eye out for a replacement for Brush One. Wayne will look into BLM options later in the year. No action was taken

Old Business:

○ Bob looked into pricing for new fire shelters. Cost would be $310 to $353 per fire shelter for personnel under 6'2” depending upon the source. Pat reiterated that Clancy VFD personnel should never be in a position to have to deploy. Bill believed that a better use of funds would be to invest in other PPE. No action was taken
○ Nic found a student organization to mow the grounds at the Clancy VFD Main Station. Bert moved that Clancy VFD pay $30.00 per mowing to be paid at the end of the season with Nic keeping track of the time. Doug seconded. The motion passed unanimously


New Business:

• Chick reported that the Clancy VFD has had fewer calls year to date than last year by this time
• Bob wanted to have a training with the Eagle Ambulance service because of the increase in calls for mutual aid assistance from their crews
• Chuck Mazurek (Guest of Clancy VFD) suggested that we make sure we are listed as additional insured under the ambulance's insurance. Bert will follow up
