Who responds if your house catches fire, and how much do you pay for that fire protection?

Those issues are on the table Tuesday in 22 districts in Monroe County in elections to choose Fire Commissioners.

News10NBC has learned that Fire Commissioners are responsible for decisions like who responds in an emergency and how much you'll pay for that service.

The Fishers fire district, which covers about half of Victor, is torn between paying for professional fire fighters or relying on volunteers. The vote for Fishers Fire Commissioner is from 5 to 9 p.m. Tuesday at Station Number 2 on High Street in Victor.
