have continued their EMS education and

obtained their EMT license. Two of these

are now part-time employees of the district

and one is working in an emergency

department of a Level 2 trauma center.

The citizens of Warren County

Ambulance District recognized the

commitment and quality of the district

with a tax increase to help fund the

operations of the district. At a time of citizen distrust

of government and especially tax

increases, it is a great sign of respect

when voters decide to contribute more

funds to an agency.

Quality patient care, progressive

management and board, engagement

with the community, and interest in the

youth who will lead our profession in

the future, Warren County Ambulance

District is leading the way.
