EMT’s still working
Ambulance Service Manager Donnie Osborne along with several EMT’s attended the fiscal court meeting to discuss how the service was to continue to operate, with no money left in the ambulance service budget and some employees pulling 80+ hour per weeks.
Simply put, the ambulance service has trouble rounding up enough part-time help to man two ambulances 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and the county has no money to kick into the ambulance account to pay for its mounting bills.
The court decided to appoint a committee to consider various options regarding how to make the ambulance service solvent.
