NCFPD board supports Prop. A
Last updated 10/16/2008 at Noon
This letter shares why the Board of Directors, North County Fire Protection District (NCFPD), supports Proposition A.
First, Prop. A creates a countywide joint powers authority (JPA) to improve regional fire services. To address shortcomings identified following recent fires the JPA will purchase, operate and maintain up to 50 additional fire engines.
Distributing these engines to local fire agencies will provide ‘boots on the ground’ during the next firestorm. The JPA will add to critical air assets by purchasing/leasing additional helicopters and firefighting aircraft.
