OPERATING LEVY 24-441 for MARION COUNTY FIRE DISTRICT#1

9.1.1. call volumes are continuing to increase an average of 5.2% per year.

Overlapping emergencies also are straining our resources. In 2019, 55% of our emergency responses were back-to-back calls. Often, we have to rely on mutual aid from neighboring agencies, which can take longer to reach you in an emergency.

Our goal is to get to you as quickly as possible and we are struggling to do that. That’s why our Strategic Plan calls for hiring additional emergency personnel and replacing aging apparatus and equipment. Our goal is to replace apparatus and equipment without borrowing money, as that would cost taxpayers more due to interest payments. Less debt makes our fire district more secure financially.

On January 16, 2020, the Board of Directors approved a resolution asking voters to increase our operating levy from 71 to 99 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value during the May 19, 2020 Primary Election. This 28-cent increase would cost an additional $4.67 per month (or $56 per year) for the owner of a $200,000 home.

This will fund two firefighter/paramedics to respond to increasing call volumes, a deputy fire marshal, and apparatus and equipment replacement without having to borrow money. At the point we retire bonds, we may ask for additional funding for personnel and apparatus purchases. The point is to ask for funding as debt is paid off to minimize impacts to taxpayers.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Marion County Fire District#1 Professional Fire Fighters “Tough Enough To Wear Pink”

Salem Oregon - Marion County Fire District#1 Professional Fire Fighters L2557 will be wearing the color pink the week of October 15th – 20th for Breast Cancer Awareness. 

The American Cancer Society Breast Cancer Facts & Figures published a report on October 3, 2017 stating “breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States, after skin cancer.  By the end of 2017, an estimated 252,710 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and an estimated 40,610 women will die from it.  Breast cancer risk generally increases with age.  About 8 out of every 10 new breast cancer cases and among 9 of every 10 breast cancer deaths are in women 50 years old and older.”

 “October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  By wearing our pink shirts, we want to bring awareness to the communities we serve for all who have experienced cancer, we also want to show our support to the survivors and families as well as remember the victims who have lost their battle.” said Firefighter/Paramedic Jerrod Schuch.
