Logo Dispute Settlement Reached
Mid-Columbia Fire and Rescue and the Mid-Columbia Firefighters Association have reached an agreement in their dispute over using similar logos. In a press release issued by both organizations, there is no longer a dispute on how the logo was developed and used, and as a result of the resolution the Firefighters will no longer use the disputed logo. There was no admission of fault or wrongdoing, and each agency will be responsible for their own attorney fees and costs. Both parties indicated they have agreed to put their relationship into an evaluation process and follow through on recommendations that come out of it in an effort to strengthen future communication and interaction.
