To sum it up, Chugiak-Eagle River had its own ladder truck built for us with a grant procured by Rick Halford 15 years ago.

3 Years later, at the fire at Moose Horn, the ladder truck was burned and damaged. The MOA then replaced our ladder truck with a reserve ladder truck from Anchorage.

The MOA fire chief is now removing this reserve ladder truck back to the MOA.  He is replacing it with a pump truck.  The replacement objections of our community and both of our Municipal Assembly Representatives.

Further, the Fire Station 13 is the Highland Reserve Station.  It was also purchased under a grant. 

The MOA chief was looking for funding or a new training tower and decided to sell the Highland Station.

CERRBSA (Chugiak-Eagle River Rural Road Service Area Board of Supervisors) requested the assets be transferred for the use of storing gravel for a quicker response time.

The MOA Fire Chief said no but indicated CERRBSA could but it for 300,000 dollars. 

On 08/06/2019, CERRBSA discovered the MOA will not be selling the station and CERRBSA can not use it either.
