I have been a resident of Camano Island for 27 years, and I have been involved with Camano Island Fire and Rescue for 26 of those years.
I got involved with the ladies fire auxiliary, and we worked to support the volunteer firefighters. As our island has grown, CIFR has grown. Soon we will be voting to renew our emergency medical services levy. The committee has worked very hard to keep it the same as we are paying now.
On July 4, my husband fell and broke his shoulder. I called 911, and they were here in 10 minutes. They apologized that I couldn't ride with him because of COVID-19. After returning home late that night, we had to return the next day with the same medical crew.
If you haven't witnessed how the medical crew works with their patients and family, you would be impressed. You never know when we will need this kind of service. Please join me in renewing this levy.
