The Sunrise Beach Fire District is turning to the use of technology to improve efficiency and communication within the district. Chief Dennis Reilly says, in the past, personnel would have to make the trip to district headquarters on Porter Mill Spring Road for monthly meetings. Now, through the use of I-pads and the internet, the monthly meetings are being conducted via video conferencing. Reilly says, in addition to personnel staying local in their respective fire houses, the video conferencing will save the district on fuel costs and time associated with traveling back and forth. Training, however, will continue at the main headquarters.
