New EMS Advisory Task Force recommendations seek to keep costs down and maintain acclaimed regional service
Following an eight month collaborative process with regional stakeholders, the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Advisory Task Force adopted recommendations for a prospective renewal of the Medic One/EMS levy aimed at maintaining the integrity of our world class system.
King County’s world renowned EMS system is funded by a Medic One/EMS levy that will expire December 31, 2013. The EMS Advisory Task Force, comprised of 19 regional leaders and decision-makers, was convened to review the needs of the system, and develop programmatic and financial recommendations to direct the system into the future. The recommendations endorsed by the Task Force on July 26 will be the basis for the Medic One/EMS Strategic Plan and next EMS levy, which backers plan to propose for the ballot in 2013.
