Letter to the editor: Please support Arvada Fire

Posted

One late September day two years ago, a teen driver ran a red light and plowed into my husband’s car as he was driving our younger daughter to school. The Arvada Fire Department responded quickly and rushed my 6-year-old to the hospital for emergency surgery. A second Arvada ambulance drove my husband to the same hospital to treat his injuries. We are forever grateful to the crews from Arvada Fire Department stations 2, 4, and 5 for their help that day.
The Arvada Fire Protection District is asking voters to stabilize their funding by freezing the resident assessment rate at 7.2 percent. Measure 6F will stabilize their funding at no additional cost to taxpayers so that firefighters and EMTs can continue to respond quickly and efficiently when you have an emergency. I can’t stress enough how minutes count in an emergency or the importance of having the best EMTs in the area caring for your child and spouse when your world is turned upside down. Please vote yes on 6E.

Lisa Cook,
Westminster
