Addressing the Housing Needs for the Valley's First Responders
The North Blaine County Fire District, in partnership with the City of Sun Valley and Spur Community Foundation, have joined together to launch a fundraising campaign for eight units of single-family, fire responder housing at the Greenhorn Fire Station. These new units will provide much needed housing for firefighters and paramedics and ensure that emergency responders can live close to where they save lives and protect property.
“We need to have our emergency responders live in our area. Without that, the public will be at risk...The lack of affordable workforce housing has made recruiting emergency responders very difficult. Now, due to population growth, increases in emergency calls and a number of retirements on the horizon, addressing the housing needs of firefighters and paramedics is an urgent matter."
-North Blaine County Fire District Commissioner Jed Gray
