Letter to the Editor: Please Support South Pierce Fire and Rescue Levy


South Pierce Fire and Rescue is a formidable force in the world of emergency response, covering 140 square miles and providing advanced life support and mutual aid to Ashford and Elbe in an additional 60 square miles.

With such a vast coverage area, this makes South Pierce Fire and Rescue one of the largest response organizations in all of Western Washington — a true testament to their dedication and commitment to providing the best possible fire protection and service to the public.

The citizens serviced by South Pierce Fire and Rescue need to support this levy and consider what would happen (brownouts due to shortage of firefighters) if it is not passed. Please support Proposition 1.
