The Osage Beach Fire Protection District has put a tax levy on the November 2nd Camden County Ballot. This is a 30 cent per one hundred dollars of assessed valuation levy and will provide funds for the partial or complete support of an EMT paramedic first responder program. Osage Beach Fire Protection District Chief Paul Berardi says that the addition of the program from this levy will hopefully cut down response time, getting paramedics to emergencies sooner.
Chief Berardi says that the addition of the EMT paramedic first responder program will help them respond to multiple calls at the same time.
The special election will occur Tuesday, November 2nd in Camden County.
