An Upper McKenzie Rural Fire Protection District EMS Levy measure was on the November 6, 2012 election ballot in Lane County, which is in Oregon, where it was approved.
This measure authorized the Upper McKenzie Rural Fire Protection District to levy a property tax with a rate of $.50 per $1,000 for 5 years in order to fund Emergency Medical Ambulance services in the district.
