We support the proposed EMS levy

  • Jun 29, 2016 at 1:30AM

As part-time residents of San Juan Island for thirty years, we have heard many positive reports about the quality and caring of our EMS providers and want to add one more. Many years ago, we asked a friend to take care of our dog while we were off-island. That day she experienced a severe allergic reaction to a prescription drug. EMS personnel responded very quickly, administered immediate aid and arranged for her to be flown to Anacortes for treatment. Their actions saved her life. The responding EMT's even made sure our dog was safe and cared for until our return. The proposed $0.50 levy will allow them to continue to provide these essential services to everyone regardless of their ability to pay while our new hospital board and a citizen's budget review committee work to improve efficiency and restore financial stability to the organization. Please vote YES.
