Michael Ryan is reporting in The Daily Mail the Greene County Ambulance Task Force will present its proposal for a new countywide ambulance system to lawmakers next month. The plan is expected to call for the hiring of eight or nine full-time crews staffed with a paramedic and an EMT. Rigs would be stationed strategically throughout the county and shifted, when necessary, to multiple call areas and during peak and low call periods. A non-profit entity would be created to operate and administer the system. The estimated cost is $6.5 million. The plan is expected to be presented to the Greene County Legislature Health Committee in early March. A decision by the full legislature would occur in the spring. The task force was appointed by the legislature in late 2013 to explore steps to improving the county’s EMS operations. Read the full story in The Daily Mail.
