Clark County Fire District 6 is working closely with local public health departments and state agencies to respond to the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus. Based on CDC guidelines and input
from our physician supervisor, we’re working to ensure the safety of our personnel while continuing to provide the high level of emergency response that our communities expect.

District leadership, in coordination with state and local partners, have put plans in place to ensure the continuity of emergency operations. This includes updated protocols for 911 call takers, refreshed training for personal protective equipment, and patient assessment strategies that limit the potential for exposure.

Here’s a short video of what our firefighters and paramedics will look like while responding to a potential COVID-19 call:

Department News

Clark County Fire District 6 is asking voters to return the Fire Levy to $1.50 per $1,000 of assessed property value during the August 4, 2020 Primary Election.

 

Why is my fire district asking for this?

Call volumes have increased almost 30% in five years – 12.9% alone in the past year. More calls mean added costs to provide service. Voters last approved a Fire Levy of $1.50/$1,000 in 2015. Since then, our Fire Levy has fallen from $1.50 to $1.16 per $1,000 of assessed property value.

A Fire Levy “lid lift” helps us keep up with higher call volumes and the increase in demand for service.

 

How will the funding be used?

If approved by voters, revenue from the Fire Levy lid lift would fund additional personnel to respond to higher call volumes and pay some costs associated with COVID-19. Funding also will be used to improve firefighter training, earthquake-proof our busiest station in Hazel Dell, and add or replace aging apparatus.

 

Is this related to COVID-19?

Our fire district has been educating the community about the need for additional funding prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. These communication efforts are well-documented on our website.  However, the funding request is timely considering higher costs associated with the recent pandemic.

 

How much will the lid lift cost?

The 34-cent lid lift would cost $34 per $100,000 of your assessed property value. Here’s a chart to help:
