Sturdivant: EMS should consider becoming part of the fire district

Dear Editor,

The entire community sings the praises of our emergency medical responders yet once again votes down a levy to support them. What gives?


Would that vote have been the same if in the public mind EMS were not a part of Peace Health Inc.? I don’t think so.

As the community displeasure with Peace Health becomes an ever more negative slugfest, why doesn’t the EMS just split itself off from the hospital district and go where they go in most other communities – with the Fire District?
