King County Fire District 27 is located in Fall City, Washington nestled in the Cascade foothills twenty four miles east of Seattle. The Fire District serves a population of approximately 6,340 people in and surrounding the unincorporated rural town of Fall City. The Fire District service area is 22 square miles.
Citing concerns regarding financial sustainability and service delivery, Fire District 27 commissioners are exploring possible futures for the Fall City Fire Department. The option selected to put on a ballot for community approval/disapproval could have significant impact on the fire staff, local businesses, and residents in Fire District 27, so it is important that community members become familiar with the ramifications of each option for themselves and the community and to seek answers from and make their preferences known to the commissioners early in the process.
