Why Vote Yes

Keep Our Fire Department Strong

More and more Houston firefighters are leaving HFD for better paying jobs elsewhere. Houston invests in top-notch training of firefighters only to have other cities hire them away. Your YES vote will help us retain experienced, locally trained firefighters to better protect our neighborhoods and businesses.

Firefighters Have Dangerous Jobs

Since 2000, 18 Houston firefighters have died in the line of duty. Hundreds more have been injured on the job. Firefighters also face higher cancer rates than the general population.

No New Taxes

Since Houston has a cap on property taxes, the firefighter fair pay initiative would NOT raise your taxes. Houston firefighters generate over $100 million in business permits, fees and other services. Simply moving that revenue to the fire department budget would fund a fair pay increase.
