Fire District 6 competes in Class “A,” which is the category of the largest districts in Washington State
Last week, Clark County Fire District 6 won the coveted Washington Fire Commissioners Association Management Excellence Award. It is given to the district that the judges judge to be the most successful in operations, logistics, finances, public awareness, etc.
Judges are not firefighters, rather they are impartial professionals from other public and private organizations. Fire District 6 competes in Class “A,” which is the category of the largest districts in Washington State.
“It’s nice to be recognized by outside sources that we’re doing the right thing,” said District 6 Commissioner Brad Lothspeich. “We haven’t been in for ten years, so it’s a great reward.
Judges also examine how districts spend taxpayer money. Achieving good results in this category is particularly satisfying, given the importance of using financial resources wisely. “2020 has been a year of great challenges and demands, but more importantly, a year of optimistic growth, planning and leadership that has put District 6 on a positive path for the future,” said Chief. of firefighters Kristan Maurer.
