The city of Auburn is less than two weeks away from launching its very own ambulance service. The municipal service will replace a previous third-party contract, which underwent significant scrutiny in the last two years.
Kezia Sullivan, who serves as director of operations for the new ambulance service, provided an update to City Council this week.
“We had some really great applicants who only wanted part-time (work), so it gives us the ability to hire them,” Sullivan explained (first reported by The Citizen).
So far the ambulance service has hired 20 full time employees and eight part time workers. The city has two of five ambulances in its possession. They are working on compliance issues and getting the final steps completed to be up and running in weeks.
