Cahaba Valley Fire & EMR District
2021 Special Election

You spoke and we listened.

During 2019 surveys were sent out as an opportunity to express your thoughts and ideas for the future of the District. After those were returned, a strategic planning committee was created to consolidate and evaluate the surveys. From this, the 2020-2025 Strategic Plan was developed. We are now to the point of putting the Strategic Plan into action. Like many things finances are important and to that end, the Board of Cahaba Valley Fire and EMR District has successfully petitioned the court to hold an election for changes in our service rate schedule.

Updated: August 20, 2021
