On November 7th, 2012 a 1% sales tax increase was passed to support EMS operations. This sales tax increase will allow us to provide around the clock ALS coverage for our community and guests to our county. We are also increasing volunteer stipends to better compensate our hard working volunteers that are the heart of our organization. Thank you Silverton for you support!

Chelsea Gardner has been accepted to the HealthONE Paramedic program in Denver, Co. We also received grant funding to help support the high tuition costs of the course.
Clark Damron and Kyle Mesich are pursuing an bridge program for EMT Intermediates that will allow them to obtain a Paramedic level of certification by the end of the summer.
