County authorized and published summary of Question:

The $1.8 million general obligation bond would allow Jackson County Fire District 5 to improve, replace and standardize apparatus and equipment at three stations (Phoenix, Talent, and Ashland). The bonds would mature in not to exceed 10.5 years.

The funds from the $1.8 million general obligation bond levy would be used to purchase three fire engines, one water tender, fire equipment for these apparatus, and specialized equipment including a self-contained breathing apparatus air compressor, air packs, masks, bottles, and three sets of vehicle extrication tools for the new engines.
