Regional Fire Authority Annexation Steering Committee
The Tukwila City Council is continuing its investigation into annexing municipal fire services to the Kent Regional Fire Authority (RFA). In September 2014, the Council heard from the Fire Exploratory Committee, which was created to identify strategies for long-term sustainable fire services. After reviewing all options available, this committee recommended that the City explore the option of annexing to the Kent RFA.
As follow-up the Council motion, the Fire Service Steering Committee has been organized with volunteers from the residential and business community, as well as firefighters, City Councilmembers, City staff, and RFA representatives.
