9/2/2009 - North Lyon County Fire Acquires EMS Franchise Agreement With City of Fernley

The North Lyon County Fire Protection District was awarded the Emergency Medical Services Franchise Agreement with the City of Fernley in a 4-1-0 vote by the City Council.  This decision marks a huge milestone in the progression and expansion of the NLCFPD by increasing staffing and consolidating both Fire and EMS services under one roof.  The North Lyon Firefighter's Association appreciates the diligence and cohesion by the District to organize and acquire the EMS Franchise.

8/13/2009 - IAFF Local 4547 Collective Bargaining Agreement Contract Finalized

The North Lyon Firefighter's Association and the North Lyon County Fire Protection District finalized the Local's first ever CBA contract Thursday evening.  The long awaited approval and ratification of the contract comes after a nearly three year long negotiation process between the two parties.  IAFF Local 4547 extends its gratitude to all negotiation team members, the NLCFPD Board of Directors, and everyone else who has contributed their time and efforts (and patience!) to ensuring the safety of the residents of Fernley as well as its Firefighters.

7/13/2009 - 48/96 is a go!

Our new 48/96 schedule is a go!  The new schedule is on a one year trial basis to observe its financial benefits.  Previously, our Firefighters worked a Modified Kelly Schedule where crews worked twenty-four hour shifts in a nine day cycle.  The new schedule places Firefighters on a forty-eight hour shift, in a six day cycle.  As proposed by the Union, the new schedule will decrease operational costs such as fuel and maintenance, and decrease the need for sick and annual leave, while maintaining continued Fire and EMS coverage for the residents of Fernley.

7/9/2009 - NLCFPD Board of Directors Vacancy Filled

On behalf of all of us at IAFF Local 4547, we want to thank Chris Murphy for his time and dedication on the NLCFPD Board of Directors.  During his time on the Board, Director Murphy pushed for increased safety for Firefighters and residents of Fernley alike, as well as the progression of the Fire District.  We thank you again for your time and efforts and wish you the best of luck!  We welcome Brian Bunn to the NLCFPD Board of Directors as he fills the vacant Board seat.  Director Bunn is currently a Firefighter with the Sierra Fire Protection District and a fellow union brother.  We look forward to Director Bunn's vision and input into the progression of the District and wish him the best of luck!
