The Kenai Peninsula Borough administration is working on a plan to reshuffle its various public safety departments. Borough Mayor Charlie Pierce has proposed an ordinance to change the structure of the borough’s Office of Emergency Management to be overseen by a senior manager, who would report to a borough public safety director. That director would report directly to the mayor, as would the fire chiefs and managers of the other public safety agencies — including Central Emergency Services and Nikiski Fire and Emergency Service Area — that provide services to specific areas of the borough. The goal is to better network the public safety providers in the borough, Pierce said at the Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly’s meeting Tuesday.
