The Beacon Journal is in the initial stages of a new project that will look at fire department efficiency, including collaborative efforts between departments, possible mergers and best practices.
The blog also will be a place to display background that can't fit into the print editions. We will direct you to other websites that are doing similar work.
Lead reporters on this project are Dave Scott and Kathy Antoniotti. Dave will be announcing updates to this blog and new stories in the newspaper through his Twitter account @davescottofakro
