A job he disliked. "1 like working with people but I was working with boards," Johnson said. Then, as he calls it, a lucky break came his way. His wife, Marcia, a Cascade hospital surgery technician, mentioned to the hospital administrator that her husband was experienced in ambulance emergency work. The administrator needed an ambulance director because Jan. 1, 1976 the hospital was to take over the service. After an interview, Johnson was offered the position. The new service consisted of Johnson, one fulltime assistant, three firemen EMTs and a few hospital employees who were trained to help out. After the first assistant quit, Schmidt took the job. Helping from the hospital were Dick Southern, a surgery technician; Donna Jagger, a lab technician; and Doug Peterson, a maintenance employee. Har- old Smith, Steve Burns and Mel Tingley - Arlington firemen, remained with the service after the switch. The number of local persons on call has risen with the increase of service. Men in uniform Mike Doggett, a 1978 graduate of Arlington High School. has been assigned to temporary recruiting duty at the Everett Army Recruiting Station. During his assignment. Doggett will be assisting local Army recruiters and talking to interested men and women about his experiences in the Army. Doggett was trained in military intelli- gence at Fort Devens. Mass. Following this assignment, he will be assigned to the U.S. Army Field Station, Berlin. Ger- many. Persons interested in talking to Doggett should call 258-2722 or visit the Everett Army Recruiting Station located at 2801 Wetmore Avenue. Robert S. Bellomy, son of Mr. and Mrs. William L. Bellomy Sr. of Moses Lake. has been commissioned a second lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force upon graduation from. Officer Training School at Lackland AFB, Texas. The lieutenant was selected through competitive examination for attendance at the school. Bellomy will now go to Fort Rucker, Ala.. for training as a helicopter pilot. His wife, Carol, is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William J. Schwehm of Lakewood. Bellomy is a 1980 graduate of Washing- ton State University, Pullman, Airman Timothy D. Pittman, son of retired Air Force TSgt. and Mrs. Dean Pittman of Arlington. has graduated from the U.S. Air Force aircraft maintenance specialist course at Chanute AFB, Ill. Graduates of the course were trained in aircraft engine maintenance, repair and service, and earned credits toward an associate degree in applied science through the Community College of the Air Force. Pittman will now serve at McChord AFB, with the 62nd Field Maintenance Squadron. He is a 1981 graduate of Marysville Pilchuck High School. Potential EMTs no longer need to leave the community to gain training, Johnson is qualified to instruct. This fall Johnson is holding his biggest class ever, 30 persons working for EMT status and 20 persons renewing their status. Eighty-nine per- sons applied but Johnson can only handle so many. Class participants must be firemen, members of search and rescue or a member of a emergency service of some kind, Johnson said. Firemen from sur- rounding fire districts make up the majority of the ~:lasses. The districts are expanding into providing better emer- gency aid. Cascade Valley Hospital's ambulances transport in Hospital District 3, except for Darrington who has its own ambulances and Oso who also can transport if necessary. Johnson's goal is to continue improving the ambulance service and try to keep the cost down. Compared to Baker Ambu- lance, a county private ambulance service. Cascade hospitars rates are 50 percent lower at $64 and $I .50 a mile. Advance life support cost extra. As long as the service has levy support rates will be lower than Baker. If a levy is voted down by the residents, rates will increase because the local ambulance service's volume is smaller than Baker. .lohnson said.
