Big Lake Fire and Clear Lake Fire need your help:

 OUR CHALLENGES


● Decreased availability of volunteer firefighters — particularily during daytime hours

● Maintain rating for homeowners’ insurance:
The Washington State Survey & Rating Bureau assists insurance companies in establishing homeowners’ rates. If fire
departments are downgraded due to inadequate staffing or response, homeowners’ insurance will rise – on average – 15-20%.

● Dramatically increased call volume:
Combined calls 2010 – 382
Combined calls 2016 – 561
(Represents a 47% increase in call volume)

● Increased state-required training
