Well after a long wait we finally received our new ISO rating which is a 4/4x. We were hoping for a 5 and came out with a 4(which is better). Our old rating was a 7/9. Thanks for the support and patience. I would also like to thank the firefighters of west Blount for all their hard work. It was a lot of long days and nights preparing for our inspection so if you see them tell them thanks. Also I would like to thank the board of trustees for trusting in me and the department and giving us the money and resources we needed to get it all done. I will post more info within the week in how we plan to improve more. We are budgeting money every year to have hydrants installed where we can and where water mains will hold a hydrant. Thank you West Blount for your support.
Thanks, JJ Ivey, Fire Chief West Blount Fire District ... ExpandHide

Just want to clear the air on the new Blount county tax that will be voted on in November....this tax will be broken down..some money to roads, schools, fire departments ext... this will not replace your fire dues for West Blount Fire District. $150 will still be due every year. Now $50,000 of this tax will go to the fire departments a year. That's not each department...the money will be split between 22 fire departments in Blount county. That comes to a little over $2,000 a year for each department. The reason for posting this is because we've had numerous residents ask if this will replace fire dues....it will not. We just want everyone to understand this part of it. We're not trying to sway your vote either way just want you to be informed. If we can answer any further questions or be of assistance don't hesitate to call. Please share this post.
We are currently experiencing technical difficulties with the computer in our billing office. Due to these difficulties, we have been forced to close our office until the necessary repairs are made. In the mean time, fire dues can still be mailed in to P.O. Box 229 Hayden, AL 35079 or dropped of in the drop box outside of Station 1 located at 757 County Road 7 Hayden, AL 35079.
On the plus side, your fire department continues to operate with 24/7 personnel. Call us should you need us! Thanks again for your continued support. ... ExpandHide
