Snohomish County Fire District 7 received some great news that we want to share. Our cardiac survival rates are twice that of the national average and 21 points higher than the state. We want to thank taxpayers in Fire District 7 and the City of Mill Creek for helping us build the most advanced emergency response system in Snohomish County.
Fire District 7 and the City of Mill Creek formed a regional partnership 32 years ago to save taxpayers money and improve our emergency response for fire and EMS. These recent statistics on our cardiac save rates are just one example of how this partnership continues to benefit everyone we serve.
The contract we have with Mill Creek funds the city fire station, 20 firefighters, an engine and a paramedic unit. Mill Creek voters approved funding for these improvements, and Fire District 7 is committed to maintaining them because it improves our district-wide emergency response.
On behalf of all of us at Fire District 7, we would like to say thank you for your continued support of this partnership. We are stronger together.
Roy Waugh, Chair
Board of Fire Commissioners
