2013 was another busy year for the Osage Beach fire protection district. Fire chief Jeff Dorhauer says the district was busy but there was a small decrease in the number of calls for service.
Chief Dorhauer also says the average response time to calls is on par with the national average.
Dorhauer says there was a total of 175 times last year where the fire district was running two or more calls simultaneously. He also says permit fees were up significantly for 2013. In 2012 fees collected amounted to just over $32,500 while nearly $89,000 was collected in 2013. A full report will be featured during the news rewind this afternoon on The Ozarks today.
