Index: New rescue gear
Snohomish County Fire District 28 in Index has received new rescue equipment thanks to a grant. In July, the Medic One Foundation of Seattle provided the fire district with a $2,900 evacuation chair, Fire Chief Ernie Walters said.
The chair is used for rescues, most often in medical emergencies, when crews need to carry people down stairs or through tight spaces that won’t accommodate a stretcher, the chief said.
The mostly volunteer fire district serves more than 170 square miles.

Mukilteo: Fire contract proposal
The Mukilteo City Council continues to consider a contract with Snohomish County Fire District 1. Mayor Jennifer Gregerson brought a new proposal to the council earlier this summer, with a recommendation to sign the contract to start as soon as September.
The council’s Public Safety Committee is reviewing the proposal, the mayor said, and is expected to draw up some questions for her to answer.
At that point, the mayor’s office will bring the issue back before the full council. That could take a few weeks.
Fire District 1 already serves Brier, Edmonds, Mountlake Terrace and most of unincorporated southwest Snohomish County.
