    A message from the KFPD Chief.
    On behalf of the Kneeland Volunteer Firefighters and  Board
    of Directors.. “Thank you”  voters and property owners,  for  
    your overwhelming  support  by voting to approve Measure
    “L” on June 3rd 2014.  
             The supplemental property tax, Measure “L”  was  approved by voters with
    over 82% of the votes. Although Measure “L” will impose only an additional annual
    tax of $80. for each improved parcels and $60. for  unimproved.  The big picture
    overall, the additional tax will raise about $30,000 a year and is only for the
    Kneeland Volunteer Fire Department.
             The measure faced little opposition when introduced at public meetings.
    Many people mistakenly thought the recent Cal-Fire fee benefitted the Kneeland Fire
    department.  Residents were very surprised to learn Kneeland Volunteer Fire
    department receives NO funding from the Cal-Fire SRA Tax.  
             The money will allow Kneeland to increase training; purchase needed or out
    dated personal protective equipment for the firefighters and begin to develop a
    cushion to replace some of our 30 year old engines.  Kneeland Fire has  11
    volunteer  men and women who are responsible for responding to structure fires,
    medical emergencies, vehicle accidents, and wild land fires in a 40-square-mile area
    with a response area nearly 100 sq. miles.  
             Kneeland Fire has been squeaking by on a $20,000 annual budget funded by
    a 20 year old modest property tax, barbecues and music festivals. Soaring costs for  
    insurance, radio communications, quadrupled fuel costs, outfitting firefighters and
    increased maintenance cost on very tired equipment led to the need  to ask the
    community for help.
             Had the tax not been approved, I am convinced the department would not
    have been able to continue its services to the Kneeland community as it has for the
    past 30 years.  Some services would have been cut.
             This infusion of funds will provide the financial stability to Kneeeland Fire for
    many years. Looking back…. I guess we just had to prove ourselves and our worth
    to the community.
              Kneeland Volunteer Fire Department today is a well-trained and organized
    department with a very strong vision for the future.  We are able to provide early
    emergency cardiac defibrillation in the event of cardiac arrest, BLS emergency oxygen
    therapy,  Jaws of life vehicle extrication and patient stabilization, EMT standards of
    emergency medical care,  low angle rope rescue, basic wild land fire response and
    structure fire response. This is what your volunteers   provide for our community
    today,  just imagine what we will be able to provide tomorrow.
              Thank you friends and neighbors for believing in us we do this for you,  in
    hopes to make a positive difference within our community in which we live and serve.

    Sincerly,
    Kneeland Fire Protection District
    Fire Chief Rick Hardin
