Suggested for children ages 0-2. We welcome parents and caregivers of infants and toddlers to come sing songs, and popular nursery rhymes, together! A simple story geared towards the children's age group will be read aloud. Physical interaction is extremely important in the early stages of child development, and this story time not only encourages adult/child interaction, but also builds the healthy habit of reading aloud to your child. Due to the short attention spans of this young age group, this story time will last about 20 minutes, with time for caregivers to socialize together afterwards while children play with toys that are provided. Story time begins promptly every Tuesday at 10:30 AM!

The City of Longview through the Emergency Medical Services provided by the Fire Department is committed to providing quality, affordable emergency ambulance care as a service to all residents of Longview. Since 2009, the Longview Fire Department has offered an EMS Subscription Program to Longview residents in an attempt to help offset the rising cost of out-of-pocket medical expenses. With the typical cost associated with EMS transports averaging $800 - $1000 per response, the program limits any out-of-pocket EMS expenses to $70/year. The single fee covers those - who are eligible - living in the subscribed household.
Enrollment and renewal periods for the EMS Subscription Program run from Oct. 1 – Dec. 31 for the subsequent year.
This subscription program is an optional plan that is available to all citizens except Medicaid recipients of our community.
