Asotin’s EMS levy would be capped at 50 cents per $1,000 and would not go up. Asotin County voters approved a similar ballot proposal a few years ago. The levy would replace funding that was previously approved by city residents, the fire chief said. It is not a new tax. The EMS levy provides basic life support with firefighters and emergency medical technicians, and advanced life support through paramedics. The city has a cost-effective partnership with the Asotin County Fire District and the city of Lewiston for the services. The revenue stream pays for emergency responders, training, ambulances, medical equipment, supplies and maintenance. The levy seeks 50 cents per $1,000 of assessed property valuation to fund around-the-clock paramedic response for its residents. More than 90 percent of emergency calls for service in 2018 were EMS related, according to Asotin Fire Chief Noel Hardin. Medical calls have increased almost 25 percent since voters approved funding for the program in 2012. Kerri Sandaine, Lewiston Morning Tribune, January 25, 2019
