Facilities Bond Approved

We would like to thank the community for their support of our facilities bond in the August 2nd Primary Election. Because of your support, the district will be able to fund projects to improve your safety, and the health and safety of our firefighters.

We will continue to share information about the bond and provide updates on this page as we make progress on implementing these service improvements.

Bond Projects

The bond will fund the construction of a fire training facility on land owned by the Fire District adjacent to Station 58 (Swede Hill).

Renovations of Stations 53 (Fox Island), 57 (Crescent Valley), 58 (Swede Hill) and 59 (Artondale) will also take place. Some do not meet ADA requirements or current seismic standards. They also lack living quarters to accommodate current and projected staffing levels, and a diverse work force.

Station 51 in Gig Harbor, the district’s busiest station, will be replaced at the same location to accommodate additional personnel and modern emergency apparatus.

Decontamination areas at stations will be improved to remove carcinogens and toxic chemicals from fire and medical calls. Cancer is a leading cause of death among firefighters, and decontamination areas provide a healthier work environment for emergency personnel.

The bond will last for 20 years and is projected to cost $9.90 per month for the owner of a $500,000 home.  The district will begin collecting the tax revenue in January 2023.

Thank you again for your support.
