Plans progress for ambulance service (4/22/10)

April 22, 2010

Williston’s new ambulance service is on schedule and on budget, according to Town Manager Rick McGuire.

McGuire updated the Selectboard on the progress of the service on Monday night. The ambulance service was included in the town budget for fiscal year 2011, which voters approved on Town Meeting Day last month.

The service is set to start on July 1.

McGuire said a new ambulance has already been ordered. The town still needs to find a second, used ambulance. Williston will likely hire South Burlington as a bill collection agency for the ambulance service, McGuire said.

“All of the pieces are falling into place as we move forward,” McGuire said.

The town currently uses St. Michael’s Rescue as its primary emergency responder.
