Arguments For and Against
Benton County Fire District #1 Levy Pro-argument Since 1946, our dedicated first responders at Benton County Fire District #1 have proven time and again that they are faithful stewards of our public tax dollars. The level of service provided by our 90 volunteers is among the best in the nation. In the past ten years, the district has seen tremendous population growth. During that time, calls for service have increased by over 46%. Our first responders and EMT's currently respond to emergency medical calls without an ambulance. Once on scene, they work hard to provide care while they wait for an ambulance from one of our neighboring communities to arrive. Our first responders are asking to fund two ambulances which will be strategically placed in the Finley area and the Badger/Reata area to provide quicker response times and a higher level of service to all. The cost of this measure will equate to approximately $8.33 per month on a $200,000 home. This cost is much less than a monthly internet movie subscription and will positively effect lives for many years to come. Let's give our dedicated volunteers the tools they need to provide this life saving service.
