Keep firefighters on duty, support King County Fire District 28 levy | Letter

For slightly more than $5 a month we can keep our local fire department staffed and protecting our community and our children with four firefighters on duty 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year.

For slightly more than $5 a month we can keep our local fire department staffed and protecting our community and our children with four firefighters on duty 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year.

That’s right, for a mere $5.17 per month ($62 per year on a $200,000 home) we have the opportunity to keep our community safe with enough firefighters on duty to respond quickly and rescue your child from your burning home or perform life-saving CPR to your elderly neighbor. This is only possible if we join together as a community and vote “yes” on the Fire District 28 levy lid lift. If we fail as a community to properly staff our fire department we will put our children and elderly neighbors at risk unnecessarily.

Reductions in the number of Enumclaw firefighters will cost much more than $5 a month in the costs to our lives and property with increased response times and possible closed stations. Let’s all do our part to keep our children safe and vote “yes” on the KCFD 28 lid lift.
