Apple Valley Fire Protection District Local Emergency Response/Fire Protection Continuation Measure
On August 2nd the Apple Valley Fire Protection District Board of Directors unanimously placed Measure A on the November 2016 ballot, for voter consideration. If enacted, Measure A would continue local funding with a $59.88 annual rate adjustment to help reopen closed local fire stations and reduce response times.
Funds from Measure A would help address community priorities such as:
•Reduce 9-1-1 emergency response times
• Improve the ability of local firefighters to respond to several emergencies at the same time
• Improve emergency response times to meet National Fire Protection Standards
• Maintain professional fire protection for local residents
• Reopen our closed stations and providing better coverage for the entire region to reduce 9-1-1 response times to all neighborhoods
Measure A requires independent annual audits and citizens’ oversight to make sure funds are used effectively, efficiently, and locally as promised. All Measure A funds must be used locally for 9-1-1 emergency response and fire protection services—by law, these funds cannot be used for any other purpose. No funds can be taken by the State.
