01/18/2010: "In Support Of SJI EMS Levy"


Dear Editor,

As PeaceHealth’s project lead for the new San Juan Island hospital I’ve heard from dozens of islanders about SJI EMS. By all accounts your EMS is held in high regard for its expertise, quality of care and responsiveness.

I have also read about many real life stories of heroic, compassionate and at times life saving care provided by the EMTs and first responders. And I’m aware of national measures of performance for which the SJI EMS is rated amongst the very best in the country. To reach and maintain that level of peak performance your EMS requires professional, well trained and devoted staff, excellent and dedicated leadership and state of the art equipment. All of which require appropriate resources. That’s where your YES vote will make all the difference.

An outstanding EMS is critical for the life safety of island residents and it is essential for excellent ER and hospital care. I urge you to vote YES for the EMS levy.

Let’s keep the SJI EMS at its very best as we build to the future.
Sincerely,

Jim Barnhart
