Ellsworth evaluating their EMS services Featured

ELLSWORTH - Ellsworth city officials are evaluating their EMS services, now that they're halfway through their trial period.

After months of debate, officials decided to house two Northern Light Ambulances at Ellsworth's fire station.

 

EMS moved in November, and now that the trial period is up in June, city leaders said they want to schedule a council workshop to see how things have been going.

 

City Manager David Cole said things seem to be going well, "So we're kind of at the halfway point so it's a good time to check in, but I will say by all indications it's working pretty well down there...talking to the folks from the ambulance service they feel like they're part of the family."

 

The Northern Light Ambulances were brought in after County Ambulance announced they were ending their services.

 

A council workshop has not been scheduled yet, but officials believe it will be set for some time in March.
