For fire assessment

Last year we had the unfortunate experience of seeing our neighbor’s property catch fire and then watch the fire come right to our property line. Had it not been for the heroic efforts of the Nevada County Consolidated Fire District we could have lost our home, our animals and other things that we also consider precious.

We called 911 for help and they came. Now the fire department is asking for our help. A yes vote on the fire assessment will enable them to staff more stations and hire additional firefighters. Without our support, they will be forced to close stations and lay off firefighters.

We live in a very high fire danger area. Having even faster emergency responses from stations that are staffed 24 hours a day would be a tremendous benefit to all of us. Please join your neighbors and vote yes on the proposed benefit fire assessment.
