Utica Fire Department Can Temporarily Provide Ambulance Service
Brooks says the decision was based on the determination that to stop service would be harmful to the city.
The dispute dates back to 2005 when the city started the ambulance service. Prior to that the fire department provided medical care at the scene but then handed off the patient to Kunkel for transport.
Brooks says he’s confident that the city will retain its license to continue to operate.
We are awaiting comment from Kunkel on this latest ruling.
