Voters Approve TVF&R's Bond Measure For Emergency Services

Preliminary results on Tuesday night, Nov. 2, indicate that voters within TVF&R's service area have approved Measure 34-308, which allows Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue to issue $122 million in proposed general obligation bonds for emergency services. Because new bonds will replace old debt, there will not be an increase in TVF&R’s total tax rate.

Bond investments will be used to:

  • Replace response vehicles as they reach the end of their useable life, including fire engines, trucks, and medical vehicles used throughout the District.
  • Fund fire station projects including seismic upgrades, security features, expansions, or living quarter modifications at 10 of 29 stations. 
  • Rebuild the King City fire station at the existing location. 
  • Relocate the Aloha fire station to a more central location for local and regional response.
  • Fund safety upgrades for TVF&R’s training center where responders practice fire suppression, emergency medical care, technical rescue, hazardous material response, and other emergency skills.
  • Purchase land for future fire stations in areas where growth is expected to occur.  

“We are so grateful for this show of support from our community, states Fire Chief Deric Weiss. Though we structured this proposal to ensure that it was cost neutral, we appreciate that our residents often have to make tough decisions about how their money is spent. Our community has consistently told us that their top priority for TVF&R is fast and effective emergency response. We will continue to use their investments wisely to fulfill this commitment.”
