City of Asotin voters are just days away from voting on a levy to provide EMS services to its residents.
Asotin County Fire District 1 has been responding to the city of Asotin for medical emergencies for years now. It has been funded through a tax on city residents but that tax expired in December, leaving questions about the future of emergency coverage.
"This is a huge vote. It means and could mean the difference between life and death on getting someone to your doorstep,” said Fire Chief Noel Hardin, Asotin County Fire District 1.
This coming Tuesday, February 12, the city of Asotin voters will be voting on whether to approve or reject an EMS levy.
"It's for quick response and paramedic level ambulance to show up at your door when you need it,” said Chief Hardin.
