Vote Yes on Prop. 1

I encourage you to vote Yes for Proposition 1. Approving Proposition 1 will sustain the current Medic One program in Arlington, Silvana, Oso and Darrington. It will also establish a permanent Emergency Medical Service levy not to exceed 50 cents per $,1000 of assessed value to fund 24-hour EMS services including basic and advanced life support paramedic services.

It is not a new levy or tax. It will continue the current level of service provide by the Arlington Fire Department at the same rate as last approved by the voters. We have traditionally re-approved this EMS levy every six years and the costs of the recurring elections are paid by the citizens — this will save some money.

Who benefits? You and your neighbors benefit. These local men and women who respond to our calls come to our homes and businesses are often the first link in the chain of survival. This is an investment that we can vote for and feel good about — especially if we need to call 911.
