Support King County Fire District 28 lid lift, keep firefighters on the job | Letters
We all sleep better at night knowing there are firefighters at the station on duty and ready to come to the rescue in any number of scary or life-threatening situations.
On the Enumclaw Plateau we are lucky to have sufficient firefighters on duty 24/7 to respond to our fire and medical emergencies in a fast, safe and smart manner.
The levy lid lift will allow Fire District 28 to maintain faster response times while keeping you safe 24/7 with enough firefighters who are properly equipped to protect our lives a property.
Without this minor investment in our department we will likely experience slower response times, station brownouts and firefighters using antiquated equipment.
Please join me in voting “yes” on the levy lid lift for the Enumclaw Fire Department and together we can keep our community saft by avoiding firefighter layoffs.
