South Placer Fire District
Fire Protection and Emergency Response Services Assessment
Why is my Fire District asking for additional funding? What will I get?
Retain and Attract Regions Best Firefighters
Funding from this measure would allow South Placer Fire to provide wages more in line with regional agencies allowing the District to increase retention and reduce employee turnover. These factors will help ensure that our locally trained firefighters stay in our community.
Ensure Rapid Response Times to 9-1-1 Emergencies
Funding from this measure would increase the density of staffing within the District, allowing firefighters to arrive and assemble on scene faster, effectively reducing the impact of the emergency.
Provide updated firefighting equipment for our Community
This measure would support improved maintenance, repair, upgrade, and/or replacement of outdated equipment and apparatus to ensure South Placer Fire uses up-to-standards equipment and apparatus for years to come.
Be better prepared for Large Scale Wildfires
Our community’s greatest threat is wildfire. Funding from this measure would provide South Placer Fire with additional fire protection and lifesaving emergency resources needed to better protect residents if large-scale wildfires or emergencies arise.
Public Accountability Standards
The funds from this assessment can only be used to provide fire protection and emergency response services within the South Placer Fire Protection District, Division 2 boundaries.
