It takes careful planning to meet the current and future emergency needs of our community as it grows. Central Whidbey Island Fire & Rescue has a Capital Projects Plan to replace aging apparatus and equipment. For the past two years, fire district personnel have been working on a Facilities Plan to identify where station improvements are needed and a Long-Term Financial Plan to identify options for funding.
These plans have identified apparatus replacement needs and station renovations that will reduce response times and improve firefighter health and safety. The Board of Fire Commissioners will consider asking voters to approve a 20-year bond sometime in 2016 to fund these improvements.
Adequate facilities and apparatus are important to community safety. We will post more information to this page as it becomes available. Thank you for your continued support of Central Whidbey Island Fire & Rescue.
