“We are thankful that our communities recognize the value that emergency services contribute to a higher quality of life“ said Fire Chief John Nohr. “EMS incidents make up 70% of our responses. Ensuring that our residents receive the best possible prehospital response and care is a critical part of our mission. The EMS levy will allow CCFR to place the right resources at the patient’s side at the right time with the necessary support to ensure that you or a loved one is receiving Advanced Life Support care with trained paramedics and EMTs.”
