Previous to this fire, many residents have questioned why the new fire station on Spruce in Silver Springs is not staffed with fire personnel. Apparently, it is only used with volunteers and is a training facility. CLCFD says the Stagecoach station serves SS, but this is unacceptable to the residents. The response time is too long to save a structure from total destruction. We need to find a way to fund this substation for the safety of the SS residents.

On the subject of fire. Did you know that about 4 years ago the Lyon county commissioners said no to the fire district when they asked for authority to cite violations concerning fire hazards? Why would you not give them the authority? It would have helped Silver Springs by requiring that properties be rid of dead trees, bushes, etc that are so flammable and of course, it would have brought revenue to the fire district to help with the removal of same with the trailer program they have now and the defensible space program.
It seems like the commissioners should be able to use their common sense and give the authority to cite fire violations. So residents, let the Fire Chief Gillenwater know that he should at least try to get this accomplished with the commissioners this year. Lyon county does have nuisence codes and a citation would mean cleaner properties, monetary penalties and/or jail time for those that do not want a better, cleaner Silver Springs.
