    Why didn’t any HFD personnel respond to the actual motorcycle accident scene on June 5th? Why are we still sending a single person to fire alarm activations? This is expressly mentioned in the MRI study (recommendation #VII-18 page 51) as being “a very dangerous practice that places the Town at a significant liability”. This practice should’ve been stopped already.

      Please note that the recommendations for improvements to Fire and EMS service models were presented to the community by the consultant (Municipal Resources Inc., or MRI) on May 31, 2022 and the report and presentation can be found on the Town’s website:
      https://www.townofholliston.us/sites/g/files/vyhlif706/f/uploads/holliston_fire_study_presentation.pdf

      Proposed implementation of changes/responses to MRI’s recommendations will be presented to the Select Board on July 18, 2022, with an additional public forum planned between Labor Day and Fall Town Meeting in October.
