Imagine a surprise awakening in the middle of the night from a frightened spouse with chest pains, or a crying child who has just fallen off your backyard swing, or a dinner guest who suddenly begins choking. Your immediate response is to dial 9-1-1. South Pierce Fire and Rescue (SPFR) makes a quick and professional response to your distress call. Help has arrived and you are relieved.
On Nov. 5, SPFR needs your help. Proposition 1 –South Pierce Fire and Rescue Facilities and Equipment Bond –will upgrade older, outdated facilities and assure that your future calls for help will always be promptly answered.
No one likes bond issues or tax increases, but everyone demands immediate response to their calls for help. With 75 percent of all 9-1-1 calls requesting medical assistance, we need well-equipped, updated emergency response capabilities.
Vote yes on Proposition 1.
