A well-trained, well-equipped Fire and Police department is the backbone of public safety services. Old training facilities are often not suited for training with modern and upgraded equipment. Bond-funded facility upgrades ensure firefighters and police officers get the best training.
Public safety spending is a significant portion of the City budget every year, and investing in the proper facilities for storage and maintenance of vehicles and equipment extends the useful life of taxpayer-funded resources. That saves money, which can be used on other important public safety expenses.
Building new fire stations to serve areas with new population growth helps make sure emergency response times are suitable everywhere. When seconds count, it’s important for every resident to be close enough for firefighters to reach them in an emergency.
