FIRE LEVY LID LIFT
"I want to thank everyone who participated in the November general election. We are disappointed with the results, but we respect the decision of the voters. We will continue to provide the highest level of service within our budget. The next step is for staff to meet with the Board of Fire Commissioners to discuss how we plan to move forward. We welcome your participation in these discussions and will continue to report back to you."
Thank you, Fire Chief Mike Harris

Our firefighters and emergency medical personnel are trained to provide the following services:
Fire suppression and prevention
Wildland fire suppression
Hazardous material spills
Vehicle accidents and extrication
Life safety education programs
We operate under a balanced budget and have passed all our financial and accountability audits by the state.
Fire Chief Mike Harris welcomes invitations to speak at local service organizations, community groups or homeowner associations. He can provide an overview of the fire district, the proposed lid lift, and answer any questions your members may have.
