On December 13, 2022, the Brinnon Fire Commission voted on two resolutions asking Jefferson County to place two measures on the ballot lifting the levy lid for both EMS and Fire for Jefferson County Fire Protection District #4.
Prop 1 & 2 will allow the District to maintain and improve the current level of emergency medical and fire services. The District will also use the revenue from this levy to improve emergency medical services and fire services as call volumes increase.
The current levy rate is inadequate to support continuing levels of service. The District has seen a 132% increase in calls over the last 10 years while maintaining the same budget without an increase.
Jefferson County approved the resolutions and put them on the February 14, 2023 Special Election ballot as Proposition 1 & 2.
Established in 1959, the Brinnon Fire Department (JCFD #4) protects approximately 131 square miles of rural Jefferson County, Washington. The district contains vast wilderness including the Olympic National Forest and land managed by the US Forest Service and Department of Natural Resources.
