A joint southern Ozaukee County fire and EMS department has already been created, and now a group of communities in the county’s central section will begin discussions about consolidating their operations. The communities that oversee the Grafton, Cedarburg, Saukville and Port Washington fire departments will all consider signing a memorandum of understanding in the coming weeks, with the villages of Grafton and Saukville and the city of Port Washington taking it up this week. The MOU would not create a joint department, but establish a joint working group to explore consolidation topics including governance, administration and management, finances, staffing, equipment, training, facilities, medical direction, emergency dispatch, response times and future growth and needs.
