What will Measure V Pay For?

Measure V will establish a consistent, predictable source of funding that will be provided to and used by local fire departments only, for the purpose of protecting lives and property from fire, to replace aging fire engines, firefighter safety and emergency response equipment such as “Jaws-of-Life”, reduce wildfire risks and improve emergency response capabilities. The individual fire departments then make their own decisions locally, in their normally budget process, about how the fire special tax money will be spent on their fire department operations and equipment.
