The Yarnell Fire District board members bring to their task a wealth of experience and knowledge in budgeting, auditing, employee compensation, and insurance. Their backgrounds include emergency medical and hospital management, and the operation of large equipment and computers as well.
Serving on an elected board is not an easy task. But, by its nature, the board of a volunteer rural fire district presents challenges all its own. While most unpaid government boards employ salaried staff to keep records and reports required by statute, prepare meeting materials, research topics and recommend decisions, volunteer fire districts have no such back-up. Board members themselves assume all duties.
