Editor’s note: Opinions expressed in this letter to the editor are those of the author alone and do not reflect the editorial position of ClarkCountyToday.com

We want to thank the community for their support of Clark County Fire District 5’s fire levy lid lift in the Aug. 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. Additionally, several more emergency response units will be added to serve the greater Vancouver community over the next 18-24 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. Labor, management and our Board of Fire Commissioners are a team, and we want residents to know that.

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.

Thank you again,

Brennan Blue, Fire Chief, Vancouver Fire Department

Jennifer Bethke, District Administrator, Clark County Fire District 5
