Marie Waldron, State Assemblymember — Our local fire departments are essential for public safety, responding to the ever-present threat of wildfires, along with other life threatening emergencies like automobile accidents and heart attacks. Once again this year, I’m very happy that my efforts to obtain funding for local fire departments in our region have succeeded.
During the budgeting process, I was able to obtain $8 million for the Deer Springs Fire Protection District to fund a new permanent station at Deer Springs Rd. and the I-15 freeway, replacing trailers that have housed the facility for over 40 years with a larger permanent facility.
I was also able to direct $2 million to the San Marcos Fire Department, to be used for capital improvements on Fire Station #3, requiring extensive remodeling to improve safety and security for the building and personnel. In addition, all four San Marcos stations need to install diesel exhaust removal systems to eliminate exhaust fumes from the apparatus bay areas to ensure firefighter safety.

As your Assembly representative, I will continue to do all I can to make sure our public safety personnel have the tools to do their jobs safely and effectively.
Sincerely, Marie Waldron
