Fire Protection

Information & Documentation:

DALLAS TOWNSHIP IS PRIVILEGED TO HAVE TWO FIRE COMPANIES LOCATED WITHIN THE TOWNSHIP – BACK MOUNTAIN REGIONAL AND KUNKLE FIRE COMPANY. DUE TO DECREASED FIRE DEPARTMENT VOLUNTEERS AND RECEIPTS FROM FUND DRIVES, AS WELL AS RISING OPERATING COSTS, THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS ESTABLISHED A FIRE PROTECTION TAX TO BEGIN IN “2019” THAT WILL SUPPORT THE FIRE COMPANIES THAT SERVICE THE TOWNSHIP. THE TAX WAS IMPOSED ON EACH PARCEL OF REAL PROPERTY IN THE TOWNSHIP AND IS 3/4THS OF ONE MILL FOR THE YEAR “2019”. PROCEEDS FROM THE TAX WILL BE PLACED IN A SPECIAL FUND AND USED SOLELY FOR FIRE PROTECTION PURPOSES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE PURCHASE AND SUSTAINMENT OF EQUIPMENT, PAID DAY-TIME STAFFING, AND PLACEMENT OF ADDITIONAL FIRE HYDRANTS WITHIN THE TOWNSHIP. THE PROCEEDS WILL BE MONITORED BY AN ADVISORY COMMITTEE THAT WILL INCLUDE THE TOWNSHIP’S MANAGER, BOTH FIRE CHIEFS, AND TWO TOWNSHIP RESIDENTS NOT AFFILIATED WITH THE FIRE COMPANIES.
