Over the past several months, COVID-19 has shown us just how important emergency services are to businesses and families in our community. However, an adequate emergency response always has been critical to our health and well-being.
Clark County Fire District 6 has a modest fire levy lid lift on the August primary ballot. Funding would be used to hire additional personnel to respond to higher call volumes, improve training, replace apparatus and maintain fire stations.
I hope voters will prioritize funding for emergency services when considering how to spend their tax dollars during the election.
