North County Firefighters currently have the privilege of providing emergency medical services to the residents of North County Fire and EMS. Some of the communities who we serve are Bryant, Freeborn, Warm Beach, Kayak, Lake Ketchum, and Grandview just to list a few.
This service has been provided by the Fire District for decades and is continually having to expand to help meet the demand due to population growth. The community’s emergency medical services are one of the most vital services in our local communities and is greatly needed to keep our families safe and protected.
This service is currently funded by a six-year EMS levy that is set to expire at the end of this year. We are asking voters to renew the levy to help ensured that this vital emergency medical services may continue to help protect our families. If this levy is not renewed, then our vital emergency medical services will not have designated funds to continue paramedic services and will result in long waits for help when seconds count. The current funding supplies items such as on-duty paramedics, on-duty emergency medical technicians, EMS training, defibrillators, aid and medic units, and most emergency medical supplies.
The North County Firefighters believe that quality EMS should be provided to every resident of our great community and endorses North County Fire/EMS Proposition No.1. Please help us and vote YES to continue EMS, so that we may continue to keep you and your family safe.
