The Inter-Canyon Fire Protection District is installing electronic locks at all four of the district’s stations to increase security.
“Each (Inter-Canyon) member will be assigned a key and will have to carry it with them,” said Dan Hatlestad, firefighter and paramedic with Inter-Canyon.
The heightened security comes in the wake of theft and embezzlement charges against former fire chief David MacBean. MacBean faces six felony counts in connection with the theft of $643,000 from Inter-Canyon over a three-year period. His arraignment is Jan. 27.
