Chatham County and the fire service they count on to keep the unincorporated county safe now have a new, updated agreement. At last week's County Commission meeting, commissioners voted to approve the new agreement with Chatham Emergency Services, something they had not done in more than three decades. The previous contact for fire service in unincorporated Chatham County had been extended since technically expiring in February. The old agreement between the County and Chatham Emergency Services was a one dollar contract. “There’s always been an agreement in place. This is now a much better revision,” said Chuck Kearns, CEO for Chatham Emergency Services. Kearns said now, the County will subscribe to the not-for-profit fire service like everyone else in Chatham’s unincorporated areas.
