PHOTOS: Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue is pleased with the results of their ballot initiative that will bring more resources and personnel to the district. Measure 34-332 will fund 92 existing firefighters and will add up to 36 more over the next five years, the district said. “We are so humbled by the support that our community has shown us by endorsing our replacement levy,” states Fire Chief Deric Weiss. “We know that our residents work hard and have to make tough decisions about how their money is spent. Our community has consistently told us that their top priority for Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue is fast and effective emergency response. We will continue to use investments wisely to fulfill this commitment. With additional firefighters and paramedics, our network will be stronger and our ability to provide life-saving care will improve.”
