On behalf of SLCFR, we wish to thank everyone who voted in support of Measure 20-237. The support of our communities is extremely important, and not something we take for granted.

Approval of Measure 20-237 will provide five new pieces of fire apparatus for the District, including a much needed ladder truck or quint. As we move forward with this project, updates will be provided via our web and social media pages, so our communities can see the progress.

The next step will be deciding which manufacturer will build the fleet. This decision has several factors like getting the most for your money. Thank you again to everyone, including all of the groups and organizations lending support to the bond project. We look forward to serving you more safely and efficiently.
