On behalf of Snohomish County Fire District 7, I want to thank voters in Mill Creek for supporting the city’s levy for Emergency Medical Service. Mill Creek contracts with Fire District 7 to provide fire and EMS for city residents and businesses.
The EMS levy helps to fund the fire station in the city and 20 firefighters, who fill a five-person staffing model for an engine and a paramedic unit. This staffing model is critical to saving lives and property.
Our contract to provide emergency services to Mill Creek expires at the end of the year. We are in the process of renegotiating another long-term contract for service. Our top priority for these conversations continues to be advocating for what is in the best interest of public safety.
Your tax dollars support the most advanced emergency response system in the county. Again, thank you for the support.
Gary Meek, Fire Chief
Snohomish County Fire District 7
