BOARD OF COMMISSIONER ELECTION DISTRICTS
South County Fire was founded in 2017 as a regional fire authority combining Snohomish County Fire District 1 and the Lynnwood Fire Department.
The Regional Fire Authority Plan approved by voters established an initial governing Board of Commissioners made up of all five elected commissioners from Fire District 1 and two members appointed from the Lynnwood City Council. The plan called for transitioning to a directly elected board beginning in 2019 with five commissioner districts. Two at-large commissioners will be directly elected in 2021.
The map above shows the districts established by the Board of Commissioners on Dec. 18, 2018. An independent consultant was hired by South County Fire to draft boundaries for five districts with balanced population and public input was solicited.
Commissioner Districts are for election purposes only and are not related to fire service operations. The boundaries apply only for the election of your fire commissioners. These districts do not change or impact 911 responses or the delivery of your fire and emergency medical services.
The election districts do not include the cities of Brier, Edmonds and Mountlake Terrace, which receive emergency services under contract with South County Fire, but are not part of the regional fire authority.
