kirkland Proposition 1:
protect our community, protect our firefighters
When your home is on fire …
When you’re having a heart attack or stroke …
When your child is drowning …
You want firefighters to get to you fast!
Having fire stations optimally located throughout Kirkland saves lives because firefighters can reach everyone – including you – quickly.
Having more firefighters on duty saves lives because they can get to you faster even when there’s another emergency happening at the same time.
Having fire stations reinforced against earthquakes save lives because firefighters will be able to get out to rescue you instead of being stuck in a damaged building.
Firefighters put their lives on the line every day to protect us. Keeping them safe from cancer caused by toxic substances they’re exposed to in fires and from viruses during pandemics saves lives – the lives of our firefighters!
