We are open, transparent, and accountable to the public we serve
The Board of Fire Commissioners meet twice every month, on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays. The meetings will be located at Snohomish Regional Fire & Rescue's Fire Station 31 Training Room with the meetings starting at 5:30 PM.
The Board makes policy for the district, manages and conducts the business affairs of the district, makes and executes all necessary contracts, employs any necessary services, and performs all acts necessary to carry out the goals and mission of the Fire District. The Fire Chief carries out the daily functions of the Fire Department.
We have a long-term plan in place to deliver cost-effective emergency services.
Planning, preparing for, and responding to emergencies is what we do best. In 2021 SRFR completed a new Capital Facilities Plan, Standards of Cover Report, and a fire-year Strategic Plan. The Capital Facilities Plan identifies where improvements are needed for stations, emergency apparatus, and equipment. The Standards of Cover report outlines the number emergency personnel needed to respond effectively to fires and emergencies. The Strategic Plan guides our spending decisions for the next five years. Most improvements can be funded through our fire and EMS levies. SRFR currently has no voter-approved bonds, but some capital needs (such as stations) may require such funding in the future.
