King County Medic One is a public service organization, a critical link in our regional Emergency Medical Service system, providing high quality, advanced patient care.
Founded in 1976, King County Medic One paramedics are trained by the world renowned University of Washington / Harborview Medical Center / Seattle Fire Department paramedic training program.
Due to the high standards of training and education established by the Seattle training program, Seattle was called the "Best place in the world to have a heart attack", after a "60 Minutes" story in 1974. To this day, the Medic One programs throughout King County are considered models for much of the world.
