The SAFE-T bond issue provided funding to update four fire stations and the District’s headquarters. Until April 24, 2017, the District's headquarters was housed at Fire Station #1 on Timberbrook Dr., which was built more than 25 years ago. Since then, the area’s population has grown by more than 25%; and the role of the fire service and the needs of our community have changed. There is now a stronger emphasis on emergency medical service, training, fire prevention, inspections and community fire education.
