Sunnyside firefighters to be trained by county

YAKIMA – The Yakima County Department of Emergency Medical Services will provide training and certification services for personnel employed by the Sunnyside Fire Department.

That’s according to an agreement approved by the Yakima County commissioners on Monday.

Sunnyside will pay the county $185 per paramedic on an annual basis for administrative support of the agreement.

The county will provide the paramedics access to a local training website and will coordinate instructor resources for a 24-hour training workshop.

Other training provided to Sunnyside paramedics is optional at additional costs.

The agreement expires on Dec. 31, 2014, and was approved by a 2-0 vote of the Yakima County commissioners.
