Greenville rescue squad may get lift from Durham

Jul 23, 2015 7:15 am
Audrey Matott is reporting in The Daily Mail the Greenville Town Board and the Greenville Volunteer Rescue Squad met again Mon., Jul. 20, to continue the effort to convert the squad into a paid service. It is believed that with a paid squad, ambulance service in Greenville would be far more reliable because paid staff would be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. However, according to the latest numbers, the paid squad would cost more than a quarter of a million dollars, and have to be raised through additional taxes. That could make the plan cost prohibitive for town taxpayers. At the meeting Monday, the town board agreed to meet with the Durham Town Board to discuss the possibility of combining Greenville's rescue squad with Durham Ambulance, first to determine if the idea was feasible and then to decide if it was something worthy of pursuit.
