Medic 71 moves to Maltby
Snohomish County Fire District #7 has moved Medic 71 from their Clearview station to their Maltby Station and redesignated it "Medic 74." The move is intended to add 24-hour medic coverage to decrease response times to outlying areas. Medic 71 was the first medic unit in Snohomish County beginning service in 1982. Now Medic 74 is staffed with a Ffrefighter/paramedic and a firefighter/EMT. The staffing of the Maltby station is the first time 24-hour, 7-days-a-week coverage with career, professional firefighters has been offered.
