Utica, NY (WIBX) – “We are ready to go”, that is the message from Kunkel Ambulance Service to Utica’s Public Safety Committee. Committee Chair and Second District representative James Zecca calling everyone to the table in hopes of putting together a plan for a smooth transition, if the need should arise. Common Councilors, Utica Police and Fire personnel, Kunkel management and the public all gathering last night to better understand  how an expected court ruling may affect ambulance service within the city.

Kunkel’s Executive Director of Operations, Steven Budda says they’ve added three rigs to their fleet, bring their compliment of ambulances to eleven. ” We are focused on providing  quality,  professional service without interruption, to the citizens of the City of Utica and we want to work as a cohesive unit with all City Departments to make this a successful transition”, said Budda.

Although in attendance, representatives from Utica’s Police and Fire Departments refrained from much of the dialogue, due to the pending litigation. The Appellate Court’s decision is expected to be handed down in the immediate future.
