EAGLE — The Greater Eagle Fire Protection District is re-examining its organizational structure, and on Tuesday residents will have the opportunity to give their opinions regarding the organization.

According to Elizabeth M. Aviles, the district has contracted with Emergency Service Consulting International to conduct a study. She said the work will follow the SWOT — strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats — model.

"Basically it looks at how we are currently operating and where we can improve," Aviles said. Additionally, she noted the study will examine the district's existing relations with other emergency services operations within the county.

PUBLIC INVITED

As part of the overall examination, local residents are invited to attend a town hall session to provide their opinions regarding the fire district's operations, economics and the policy issues it faces.

The district will host the session Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Eagle Fire Station.
