In this episode, Central Kitsap Fire & Rescue Chief John Oliver explains how his special district was able to pass a $60M capital facilities bond, the 2nd largest in Washington State history, to replace or upgrade 9 out of 10 fire stations. Not only did the district pass the bond with a 73% approval rating, they managed to do it in the middle of a pandemic. Chief Oliver recognizes that the process was laborious, and required a different approach than had been attempted in the past, but the results were well worth the effort. Small, large, volunteer, combo or career, this episode provides tips that agencies of any size or budget can use to increase their chances of successfully passing bonds.
