About the Fire Protection District
We all know what the Knollwood Fire Department does - we see the trucks and their highly trained personnel around the neighborhood, and we know they'll respond promptly and professionally if we should ever need to call 911. But what does the Fire Protection District do?
The Rockland FPD is a unit of government authorized to levy taxes for the purpose of providing fire and emergency protection. In other words, that's where the tax money goes that supports the Fire Department. The FPD has a three-person board and meets regularly to review the expenses and needs of the Fire Department. The board works closely with the Chief to ensure that the fire department has what it needs to operate efficiently and effectively.
