Eastside Fire and Rescue’s Medic 21 Mitigation Pilot Project will be coming to a close following a six-month operational time frame.
The project was originally implemented on Aug. 1, 2017 as a collaborative effort between Eastside Fire and Rescue, the Bellevue Fire Department and King County Emergency Medical Services to increase advanced life support services on the Sammamish plateau during several large-scale roadway projects planned within the city of Sammamish.
The study aimed to evaluate response times due to decreased access to incidents because of construction projects and added traffic congestion.
Data collected during the mitigation project will be used to assist with defining future service response needs and contribute to long-term planning considerations. Meanwhile, EFR and Bellevue Medic One will continue providing outstanding services to the citizens of Sammamish, according to a press release from EFR.
