One of the most impactful and effective methods of voicing your opinions is through our local, state and national government officials.  We encourage you to utilize our representative republic and let your representatives know of your concerns through letters. We encourage you to write ALL your representatives, if possible, preferably using written correspondence, but emails or phone calls if not. We ask that you be polite and respectful and suggest that, rather than using a form letter, you personalize the letter with positive statements regarding the importance and impact your Fire Department has had on you, your neighbors and your community.

You might wish to tell your government officials how the Rough and Ready Fire Protection District sits in the middle of a fire-prone rural area; that it, like many other rural fire departments, is facing financial difficulties due to increasing expenses and mandated requirements, while income from taxes and assessments remain static; that because of the financial shortfall, the department is facing the possibility of closing; that your fire department provides needed quick and professional emergency medical treatment in an older community; and that rapid fire response is crucial to maintaining homeowner's insurance in an area where insurance is becoming more expensive and harder to obtain.

Please urge your representatives to understand the urgency of the situation and ask them to work quickly and diligently to obtain new and sustainable funding to save the Rough and Ready Fire Department!

We have assembled a list of government officials to whom you may wish to communicate and have included the correct form of address for each.
