The South Snohomish County Fire and Rescue Regional Fire Authority (RFA) met for the first time on Sunday to establish the authority as a governing body, swear in the RFA board and swear in the new fire chief. The group met on Sunday because it was Oct. 1, which is the first date the RFA could officially form based on a ballot that was approved by 54.40 percent of voters in the August primary election. The measure consolidated the Lynnwood Fire Department and Snohomish County Fire District 1 into the new RFA. The new RFA Board consists of the five former Fire District 1 commissioners (David Chan, Jim Kenny, Jim McGaughey, Bob Meador and Richard Schrock) and two Lynnwood City Councilmembers selected by council (Benjamin Goodwin and M. Christopher Boyer).
