Voters on Tuesday overwhelmingly approved a Medic One levy that will fund countywide emergency medical services (EMS) for 2020-2025. Unofficial results showed 79.1 percent of voters approved the measure. This levy replaces an expiring Medic One levy that has provided critical funding to the EMS system for the past six years.
“When voters overwhelmingly approved Prop. 1, they voted to ensure that King County residents have access to life-saving help in an emergency medical situation,” said King County Council Vice Chair Reagan Dunn. “I’m proud that our EMS system is widely recognized as one the best in the world and am gratified that the voters decided to maintain this high standard of service.”
