The Mesa County Fire Departments are asking for your help in completing a survey.
The fire service survey is designed to look at how our fire departments currently operate in Mesa County.
Residents can recommend ways to improve the system that will benefit the entire community. Plus this will give fire departments an idea of how much the community knows about their services.
Fire officials say it's important everyone take the survey. They say if people don't participate they won't be able to make changes that are necessary to better serve our area.
"We think that if we work together then we can do a more cost effect service, grand junction fire chief Ken Watkins said said. "Certainly we see some room for cost avoidance in the future and with this recession we're in and just coming out of the recession we think that's an important thing to look at."
Ten of the 11 fire departments in Mesa County are participating in this survey project.
Authorities say there will be public meetings during the next three months for residents to attend.

Paper survey's are also available for people who do not have access to the internet. They can be filled out and turned in at the fire department in your area.
