Polk County Fire Rescue (PCFR), on behalf of the Polk County Board of County Commissioners, has been awarded the Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) from the Department of Homeland Security/Federal Emergency Management Agency (DHS/FEMA). The public announcement of the successful award was made on June 3, 2016. The grant is to replace PCFR’s aged self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA), which allows firefighters to have a breathable air supply while in hazardous environments, such as smoke and toxic gases. On Tuesday, June 21, formal acceptance was approved by county commissioners for the $1,579,900 grant. This is a matching grant with a 90 percent federal share ($1,436,273), matched with the county contribution of 10 percent ($143,627).

Employers in the Crosshairs: Gun Rights vs. Workplace Safety

Husch Blackwell

Texas recently passed new “open carry” laws that can present employers with unattractive options if they want to prohibit visibly displayed or concealed handguns on their premises. Additionally, Texas and more than 20 other states have enacted “Parking Lot” laws or “Guns in Trunks” laws, which make it illegal for employers to prohibit the possession of firearms in employee-owned vehicles on employer-owned property. In many cases, these laws constrain employers from discharging or taking other adverse employment action against employees who lawfully possess firearms in their vehicles.While these laws create liability for employers who attempt to regulate the possession of firearms on their property, at the other end of the spectrum, workplace violence and shootings also create potential liability issues for employers. Businesses are left trying to comply with laws that enhance gun rights while maintaining a safe work environment as required by state and federal law.

The way in which local governments provide services is changing. Recently the City of Toronto became the latest internet phenomenon when someone used Twitter to alert the city of a dead raccoon (Twitter). The City responded saying they had notified animal control but animal control did not show up until several hours later. In the meantime, the poor little guy had already become an internet sensation. This highlights the changing expectations that residents have in how cities/local governments provide services. Residents expect governments to be mobile, be responsive to technology, and to be able to respond quickly. There is a rising expectation that government be as mobile and technologically savvy as residents both at city hall and in the field, or risk becoming the next internet sensation.
