Letter: Ambulance District should be commended

Ambulance District should be commended

The Pitkin County Public Safety Council would like to express their support for ballot initiative 1A, which would increase funding for the Aspen Ambulance District. The Public Safety Council is a collaborative group representing a diverse range of public and private entities that address public health and safety issues in Pitkin County.

Since 1982 the ambulance district has provided top notch services to our community without once asking for an increase in funding. Their dedication to fiscal responsibility, while maintaining high quality services, is to be commended.

The Aspen Ambulance District logs over 1,000 calls each year. In addition, they are proactively involved in community events, CPR/AED trainings, purchasing AEDs for local businesses and assisting with special events planning. Whether you experience it first hand, or not, each day they are creating a safer environment for every person who lives, works and plays in Aspen.

Members of the Aspen Ambulance District go above and beyond to serve their community each day. Please vote yes on ballot initiative 1A to ensure this level of service is maintained in our community.

Scott Thompson

Chairperson, Pitkin County Public Safety Council
