S.E. Thurston Fire Authority provides medical service and fire protection to about 35,018 citizens covering 84 square miles including the cities of Yelm, Rainier, and unincorporated areas. When the fire department goes on a call to the Lawrence Lake or Vail Road area (15 minute travel time each way due to traffic plus time at location), the city of Yelm, with a population of 8,230 is left without medical service and fire protection.

Lawrence Lake fire station project is currently included in the House Capital Budget to receive $252k, many thanks to Rep. JT Wilcox. We are now asking that Lawrence Lake Fire Station be added to the Senate Capital Budget during your negotiations to ensure the project will be included in the final Capital Budget. S.E. Thurston Fire Authority’s area of coverage includes Legislative Districts 2 and 20.

Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter.
