On March 12th, 2019 registered voters of the Evergreen Fire District voted in favor to approve Evergreen Fire's operational levy. The levy is a total of 37.72 mills (approximately $631,500 in the first year), and will be used for staffing and equipment for a duration of 10 years, a net increase of 29.48 mills from what is currently being paid.

2019 LLS Firefighter stairclimb
The LLS Firefighter Stairclimb is the world's largest on-air stair climb competition, and annual fundraiser held at the tallest building in town, the Columbia Center. All 2,000 participants are career or volunteer firefighters who will climb up the second tallest skyscraper west of the Mississippi in full turnout gear, weighing over 50 pounds, while on-air. Throughout the 69 flights of stairs, 1,356 steps, and 788 ft. of vertical elevation gain, we all remember
that every step forward is representative of moving
closer to a cure. Although this is an extreme test of
physical endurance, it pales in comparison to what
blood cancer patients endure. All proceeds raised
directly benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society,
and since its inception in 1991, this event has raised
over $17 million thus far.
On March 10th, eight Evergreen Fire Rescue Firefighters traveled to Seattle to participate in the 28th annual Scott Fire Fighter Stairclimb benefiting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). All, eight Evergreen Fire climbers successfully reached the Skyview Observatory at the top of the Columbia Tower. Together, the Evergreen Fire Rescue team donated $6,669 to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, with this year's event totalling 2.8 million dollars! The LLS uses these donations to support blood cancer research as well as provide support and services to blood cancer patients and families, including co-pay assistance. Thank you to all those who donated, as well as the Brass Tap and Sacred Waters Brewing for graciously hosting fundraisers.
We are excitedly looking toward 2020's event!
