EMS (Essential Life Saving Services) Levy Renewal
Here at Mason County Fire District #4, it has been our honor to continue to serve our communities as we continue to meet the current unprecedented needs and new challenges like the COVID-19 virus and the pandemic.
Your trusted Emergency Medical Services (EMS) team of EMTs are on call 24-hours a day. They are at the ready and rapidly responding to life-threatening medical emergencies.
EMS services are financially supported through an EMS property tax levy. In 2015, you showed your support and voted yes on a 6-year EMS levy request. With your help, we were able to implement the strategic plan, which included the purchase of much-needed apparatus, ensure we had the equipment necessary for community safety and funding of personnel to ensure we had full capability to meet community needs.
That funding expires at the end of this year.
On August 4th, Mason County Fire District 4 is asking you for a permanent levy renewal to secure your fire district’s ability to meet your needs now and into the future. This renewal will be a continuation of the existing voter-approved rate of 50 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value, representing no levy increase.
If approved on August 4th, this levy will make available the long-term financial investment needed for your EMS team to continue to provide essential lifesaving services.
With the trust you have placed in your fire district, we have been able to meet new requirements and challenges while also continuing to provide the level of safety, security, and service you expect, and more importantly, deserve.
If you have any questions about the EMS levy continuation request or Mason County Fire District #4, please contact Fire Chief Bob Burbridge at 360-426-7222 or contact us by email.
