Fire District 5's Levy Lid Lift Approved

 

We want to thank the community for their support of our fire levy lid lift in the August 2 Primary Election. Thanks to your support, Fire District 5 will now have sustainable funding that will support the hiring of three additional firefighters, including a paramedic, at the new Station 11 that will serve the Orchards-Sifton area beginning this fall.

 

We will also be able to add several more emergency response units to serve the greater Vancouver community over the next 18 to 24 months. These new positions will help us cover growing demand for services and improve response times across the district.

 

We would also like to thank our firefighters for sharing information about our first voter-approved funding request in 30 years.

 

We’re proud to serve the community and grateful for your support. We’ll continue to share information with you and report back when we make progress on these service improvements.

 

The lid lift returned the fire levy rate to $1.25 per $1,000 assessed property value and will take effect January 1, 2023.

 

Thank you, again, for your support.
