MEDICAL LAKE — The organization that has served the citizens of Medical Lake for 115 years was dissolved this year after the overwhelming passage of Proposition 1 in August and was annexed by Spokane County Fire District 3.
“The facts really spoke for themselves,” Medical Lake Fire Chief Jason Mayfield said. “I am super proud of our citizens for recognizing the need and taking this step.”
His priority when he became chief six years ago was to guarantee every citizen would get a response when they called 911, but it soon became clear that wasn’t possible, Mayfield said.
