Did You Know the EMS Levy is Not New?

Part of the levy funds are used for EMS labor costs. We currently operate six fully staffed Advanced Life Support ambulances 24/7 throughout the island. Additionally, in collaboration with local fire departments, we provide three Basic Life Support ambulances. Our EMS department employs just over 50 men and women; to include Paramedics, EMTs, office staff, and management.

Beyond the Rig

For the past four decades, the role of EMS on Whidbey Island has been much greater than just an ambulance service,” says Medical Program Director Dr. Paul Zaveruha.“Although that remains the core of our mission, we continue to be involved in community outreach in our commitment to health issues.”
