CITY OF ANACORTES, WASHINGTON <br />RESOLUTION NO. 1946 <br />A RESOLUTION of the City of Anacortes, Washington, adopting a non binding policy: (1) concerning budget <br />allocations for Fire Protection Services Levels, (2) endorsing the revision of the Ladder Truck Fire Impact <br />Fee, dedicating an allocation of equipment rental funds to purchase Fire Suppression Apparatus and <br />Equipment on a delayed replacement schedule; and (3) setting the levels and types of services provided <br />by the Anacortes Fire Department. <br />I. RECITALS <br />WHEREAS, the setting of Fire Protection levels of services and capital budgets by the City of Anacortes <br />("City") requires that the City Council ("Council") in conjunction with the Mayor and the administrative <br />staff assess community risks, needs, and determine the amount and sources of revenue and prudently <br />establish operational and capital priorities and allocations; and <br />WHEREAS, the Council finds that the City's Fire Protection System is a primary obligation to City residents, <br />and endorses the six year plan to provide a minimum capability of providing an "imminent rescue and an <br />effective response force capability;" and <br />WHEREAS, the City Council endorses the Fire Department deliver Advance Life Support Ambulance <br />Services to residents within the designated ambulance area, and is an important medical service for our <br />regional community; and <br />WHEREAS, the City Council endorses that the Fire Department provide other specialized services such as <br />hazardous material response, rope and confined space rescue, and wildland/urban interface fire <br />suppression; and <br />WHEREAS, the Fire/EMS Masterplan Recommendations and Washington Survey and Rating Bureau <br />Findings have identified services that are below standard compared to other cities in the State with <br />similar characteristics, as well as national and regional standards; and <br />WHEREAS, the Public Safety Committee endorses raising the Level of Service through adequate funding of <br />operational and capital requirements that improve fire protection services for the current and additional <br />population and community growth; and <br />WHEREAS, the City's Capital Facilities Plan ("CFP") includes evidence indicating a need for effective and <br />efficient Fire Protection and Rescue Services that are adequately funded by Reserves, General Fund, and <br />Impact Fee Revenues; and <br />WHEREAS, the Council finds that establishment of a revised impact fee, in part, enables adequate funding <br />for future capital impact budgeting, satisfying concurrency requirements; and ensuring that Fire <br />Protection and Rescue services are adequately funded at the levels of service approved by the City <br />Council; and <br />CITY OF ANACORTES <br />RESOLUTION NO. 1946 <br />Page 1of4
