- 2020-2025 Strategic Plan (1.5 Mb)
On June 26, 2019, the King County Council unanimously passed both the Medic One/EMS 2020-2025 Strategic Plan and the EMS levy measures, clearing the way for the 6-year, 26.5-cent EMS levy to be placed on the November 2019 general election ballot.
The Plan and levy are the direct result of an extensive process recently undertaken by regional leaders, decision-makers and Stakeholders, to ensure the EMS system can continue meetings its commitments into the future.
The levy rate of 26.5 cents/$1,000 AV means that an owner of a $500,00 home in the region will pay $133 in 2020 for some of the nation’s most highly-trained medical personnel to arrive within minutes of an emergency, at any time of day or night, no matter where in King County.
