Welcome New Senior Advisory Council

Back to Recent News Page

The Orland Fire Protection District introduced the newly reorganized Senior Advisory Council (SAC), promising the new group will focus all its energies on the interests of the Fire District and the needs of the Fire District’s senior members. The SAC was first created in 2009 to address the needs of seniors on issues of health and fire safety, explained SAC Liaison Rosemaria Genova who introduced each of the new board members at the October regular meeting of the OFPD Board of Trustees.

Chief Ken Brucki applauded the new Senior Advisory Council and their promise to make the district’s seniors and the district’s fire needs their number one priority. “Seniors are a very important community for the Orland Fire Protection District. The Fire District is constantly evaluating its service and the needs of seniors,” said Chief Ken Brucki.

The new Senior Advisory Council will help the Fire District continue to meet the needs and the expectations of our senior community. The District wants to make sure that not only does the OFPD respond to the needs of seniors professional, efficiently and successfully, but also wants to ensure that the senior community has a means of directly communicating with the District what they expect and what they need.

The new senior group includes past members and new members and plans to grow to be as representative of the senior community as possible:
