In 1999, the Fire District established a trust to help offset the cost of health insurance for retirees. Employees who retire in good standing with the Fire District and meet the requirements outlined in the trust are eligible for assistance with their insurance premiums until they reach the age of eligibility for Medicare. This trust is overseen by a five-member board that is comprised of an accountant, one retiree, one member from fire department administration and two current employees. Monies deposited in this fund are usable only for health insurance and are separate from the primary fire district budget.
The board meets once quarterly to review investment performance, policy and expenditures.
