County EMS under Review

March 8, 2018

By John Raffel

The Osceola County Board of Commissioners voted at its Tuesday meeting to review the EMS Department and operations from an outside service.

“The long and short of that is you have your rumor mill out there and there’s some rumors that are circulating,” board chairman Larry Emig said. “Whether they’re accurate or not, I don’t think so personally. Others do. So we felt in all fairness we need to get to the bottom of this and be neutral. We’ll find an outside group or person to do a program review, policies and procedures.

“That’s not uncommon. We agreed to do that and we’ll be moving forward.”

The board also approved the Commission on Aging application to the United Way for the 2018 grant.

The board also approved the Veterans MVAA County Training Grant. “These grants are available to help spread and provide funds for supporting veteran services we have,” Emig said.

“Every year, there’s a grant available that can help.”
