Frequently Asked Questions

How will Measure Z address my public safety needs?
Due to budget constraints, Sheriff’s patrols have been greatly reduced across Humboldt County, meaning it can sometimes take several hours for a Sheriff’s deputy to respond to a call. If enacted Measure Z can provide the funds necessary for expanding patrols, maintaining emergency 9-1-1 response times, and making sure calls about violent or property crimes are responded to promptly.

Also, volunteer fire departments and firefighters play critical roles in protecting life and property here in Humboldt County. Additional resources will help maintain rural fire and ambulance protection services, allowing our first responders to better – and more safely – protect County residents.
