Snohomish Regional Fire and Rescue serves 180,655 residents in the cities of Lake Stevens, Monroe and unincorporated southeast Snohomish County. It also provides emergency services to the city of Mill Creek on a contract basis through 2022.
SRFR’s contract with Mill Creek will expire at the end of the year. The contract was not renewed because our agency felt strongly that our residents do not subsidize fire and EMS service for Mill Creek.
Loss of the Mill Creek contract will not impact the quality or level of emergency services district residents receive. SRFR is financially sound and can weather the revenue loss. In fact, we’re hiring firefighters and paramedics to respond to higher call volumes, adding two deputy fire marshals and a medical services officer, improving firefighter training programs, and completing fire station projects district wide.
We have an excellent working relationship with South County Fire, which is the agency that will serve Mill Creek residents. SRFR and South County Fire already respond to emergency calls together as part of a cooperative agreement that the closest unit responds.
SRFR is an exceptional organization providing the highest level of care for residents. Our cardiac save rate is twice the national average. In addition to fire and EMS, we’re in local schools teaching fire and life safety, offer safety classes for seniors and children, as well as CPR, first aid, and fire extinguisher use.
This is possible because of your personal and financial support; and we are grateful. Please reach out if we can ever be of service.
