Johnson County Fire District No. 2 - Service Transition Plan

 

 

October 28, 2021

 

 

Sitting as the governing body of Johnson County Fire District No. 2, on Oct. 21st, the Board of County Commissioners authorized two separate agreements that transfer fire services to the City of Overland Park and Johnson County Fire District No. 1.    This transition plan was developed over two years ago and was prompted by recent and anticipated future growth of Overland Park, along with a loss of revenue caused by the early termination of Fire District No. 2’s contract with Overland Park.     Fire District No. 2 serves the southeastern portion of Johnson County.

 

Beginning on November 28th at 8am, the City of Overland Park will provide fire / rescue services to the portion of Fire District No. 2 that is located east of Lackman Rd and will also serve portions of Miami County Fire District No. 2.   The existing fire stations located at 18475 Mission Rd and 19120 Metcalf Ave will continue to operate using Overland Park Fire Department personnel.   Overland Park will employee 22 existing Fire District No. 2 personnel.   Overland Park is in the process of building a new fire station at 12301 W. 175th Street.  This new Overland Park fire station is anticipated to open in November.   When this transition plan begins, Fire District No. 2 will close its fire station at 19065 Lackman Rd.  Overland Park’s new fire station will serve both city territory and Fire District No. 2 territory located east of Lackman Rd.   The staffing level at the Metcalf Ave fire station in Stilwell will increase when Overland Park adds a Battalion Fire Chief position after Jan 1st.  

 

Also Beginning on November 28th at 8am, Johnson County Fire District No. 1 will provide fire / rescue services to the portion of Fire District No. 2 that is located west of Lackman Rd, including the City of Spring Hill, and will also serve portions of Miami County Fire District No. 2.    Johnson County Fire District No. 1 will employee 22 existing Fire District No. 2 personnel.   The existing fire station located at 20500 W. 207th Street in Spring Hill will be operated by Fire District No. 1 personnel.    The staffing level at the Spring Hill fire station is being increased when this transition plan begins.    The Spring Hill fire station will be assigned a total of six firefighters per 24-hour shift (One Captain, one Lieutenant, four Firefighters - at least one will be a paramedic), one Battalion Fire Chief, and two Paramedics from Johnson County Med-Act.

 

Fire District No. 2 anticipates a smooth transition of fire / rescue services and does not foresee any service interruptions.
