Snohomish Regional Fire & Rescue is asking voters to maintain a seven-member Board of Fire Commissioners on the February 14, 2023 Special Election ballot.
SRFR is the result of three fire districts (Snohomish County Fire District 7, Monroe and Lake Stevens) merging to be more cost-effective and efficient for taxpayers. Our population has grown to 160,000, which requires maintaining the number of fire commissioners to adequately represent the people we serve.
SRFR is the second largest fire agency in Snohomish County — and we're growing. Other fire districts in the area have boards comprised of seven to nine members. These agencies include South County Fire and North County Fire in Snohomish County and Valley Regional Fire Authority, Eastside Fire, and Puget Sound Fire in King County.
Fire commissioners are elected by you. They make policy for the district, manage and conduct business affairs, execute all contracts and perform all acts necessary to carry out the goals and mission of the Fire District and its taxpayers.
A seven-member board is appropriate for our population and provides better representation for the number of residents and businesses we serve. Like other fire agencies, it will provide a higher level of service that community members want from their elected officials.
Please contact Fire Chief Kevin O'Brien with your questions at (425) 249-6984 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for considering our request.
