ApparatusThe Board of Directors of South Lane County Fire & Rescue have elected to place an Equipment Bond on the ballot for the 2015 November General Election.

Please visit http://southlanefire.org/news/2015-bond-information.

The proposed bond will generate an estimated 2.6 Million dollars. The plan is to purchase a much needed ladder truck and replace two aging fire engines and also purchase two water tenders.

Replacing the current, aged out fleet provides safer, up to date apparatus with firefighting capabilities not currently available. These fleet upgrades will directly impact fire protection in the entire fire district.

FACTS: General Obligation Bond

5 ½ year term

Estimated rate is $0.30/$1000 of assessed value

Estimated Total Revenue: 2.6 million

Impact: $30 per $100,000

District patrons are still encouraged to exercise extreme caution when doing things that could lead to a fire. The Oregon Department of Forestry Eastern and Western Lane have also adopted the same precautions for their protected lands.
