I am interested in communities/cities that have established a Fire Watch ordinance. I have written an ordinance for in the event that we need to use our firefighters on overtime for a Fire Watch (e.g. the city will be reimbursed $50 per man per hour, minimum of two men, by the building owner or building representative). We’ve had to face this situation a few times and the city had to incur the costs. Our council would like to know if other cities have established the language for this type of ordinance already.
Any information would be appreciated, please email Steve Ineman at: [email protected]
