On behalf of the board of directors and the men and women of the Poulsbo Fire Department, I want to sincerely thank the citizens for their overwhelming support. Continuation of this EMS levy was an important part of our strategic planning process.

On behalf of the board of directors and the men and women of the Poulsbo Fire Department, I want to sincerely thank the citizens for their overwhelming support. Continuation of this EMS levy was an important part of our strategic planning process. This funding, as well as funding from our operations levy, will enable us to purchase needed equipment, apparatus and a new medic unit. It also enables us to maintain and increase staffing to keep up with increasing call volumes. Many people have worked hard to make this levy successful; it was a tremendous team effort. We realize, though, that your confidence in our sound financial operations is our mainstay and the key to a positive outcome. We will honor your confidence and trust by continuing to be good stewards of your tax dollars as we provide the best possible emergency services.

Once again, thank you voters of Poulsbo Fire District 18. Your continued support makes our community safer and is part of what makes this community such a great place to live.
