Huron Votes To Extend Plan For Land Ambulance Response Times

Huron County | by Peter Jackson  

EMS official says poor weather, road closures main barriers facing Huron ambulances.

Patients in need of an ambulance in Huron County are well-served.

That's the conclusion of County Council, which has voted to extend the current Land Ambulance Response Time Plan through next year.

Operations Commander with Huron Emergency Services, Rob Taylor tells Country 104.9 News that challenges to response times continue in the winter.

He mentions that the distance to some calls compounded by heavy snow, blowing snow and road closures are just part of the job for first responders.

Taylor says Huron Emergency Services has seven main bases and two posts, whose locations are determined by call volumes.

He points to the excellent condition of the ambulance fleet, which is in the process of being updated.

Taylor expects two new ambulances to arrive in Huron, within the next several weeks.
