Starke County EMS Director, Lisa Burger, informed county officials this week that the ambulances were recently re-certified by the state. In an inspection, the trucks are gone over and the paperwork is audited.
Burger told the Commissioners that in the future the state will be doing random inspections, so their number could be drawn in six months, or maybe not again for three years.
To get ready for the inspection, Burger said, all vehicles were outfitted with new tires.
After the inspection, a report is sent to Medicare and Medicaid to make sure those officials realize all is in order with the service.
