Rapid Response Needs Reliable Funding

Independent funding is critical to provide essential emergency medical services in our communities.

In November, voters approved the creation of a new, independent EMS district.

The levy on the May ballot is the next step toward developing a sustainable, separate funding structure for EMS services throughout Valley County.

An EMS levy rate increase of .0002423 ($24.23 per $100,000 of taxable value) is proposed to fund EMS services throughout Valley County. This measure must pass by a two-thirds supermajority, or 66 and 2/3 percent.
