Pulaski County Emergency Medical Services continues to catch up on ambulance repairs. The county commissioners Monday agreed to let Jim Dobson Ford fix an ambulance that hit a deer in mid-July. It will cost more than $4,600.
Another ambulance that hit a deer back in late June has been repaired, according to EMS Director Bryan Corn. But on August 16, it will be taken to Crossroads Ambulance Sales and Service in Middlebury for the installation of a new powered cot. “I’m going to take that up there and have it there at eight o’clock in the morning, and they’ll have that in, in, they told me, about two-and-a-half hours,” Corn explained. “So really, once you factor in the drive time and everything, that truck should only be out of service for six, seven hours, maybe.”
Much of the cost of all of that work will be covered by insurance.
