La Pine Rural Fire Protection District Position 1

Special districts in Oregon are formed to govern specific resources. Examples are people’s utility districts, library districts, sewer districts, irrigation districts, ports and cemetery districts. Some districts get revenue only from taxes. Others, such as water districts, get revenue from ratepayers. Others may combine the two sources. Each district is governed by a board of directors which is responsible for the operation of the district and its financial accountability. ( https://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/198.010 ) Qualifications: Candidate must be a registered voter or an landowner in the district. If the district has a supporting ordinance, employees of the district are not eligible. ORS 478.050Salary: A member of the governing body of a district may receive an amount not to exceed $50 for each day or portion thereof as compensation for services performed as a member of the governing body. Such compensation shall not be deemed lucrative. The governing body may provide for reimbursement of a member for actual and reasonable traveling and other expenses necessarily incurred by a member in performing official duties.

Your Experience/Qualificatons Retired Internal Medicine and Urgent Care physician
County Deschutes
Term 4 years
By improving outreach with local media, submitting regular updates of Board and department activities to the local radio and print media, and by making better use of reader boards in front the fire stations.
As an urgent care physician for more than 20 years I made decisions daily about the severity of patient illness and injury and whether the patient required transport to a higher level of care. That background will inform policy regarding patient transport to the local hospital, which is located more than 30 miles from most La Pine Fire District residents, an issue which has led to conflict with local medical providers. I have extensive experience with medical documentation, coding and billing, which will help improve reimbursement for ambulance services and strengthen the financial position of the Fire District. I have also served on other Boards including The Corvallis Clinic Board of Directors and The Corvallis Clinic Foundation Board and thus have experience working with a group to accomplish policy and long-range planning.
My concern is for medical services provided by La Pine Fire, which account for 80% of service calls to the department. I believe that community education programs (mailers, videos on the Fire Department website and Facebook page, etc.) can help teach the public when to call an ambulance and when to call their local medical provider.

Those same avenues (especially video) can help expand fire safety awareness, as well. All of us in the Rural Fire Protection District are concerned about the possiblity of wild fire impacting where we live and play.
