Fire chiefs ready to talk on county EMS future

The Door County Fire Chiefs Association is opposed to a privately-operated EMS system. The membership, however, is willing to work with the county to find ways to make the system work better.  The association this week went on the record against Door County's request-for-qualifications from contractors interested in running EMS.  Sister Bay-Liberty Grove Fire Chief Chris Hecht, the association's president, recognizes the county's right to operate EMS or any other service cost-effectively.  He says fire chiefs hope the county will meet with them to discuss the future of EMS.



Door County Administrator Ken Pabich says, as in the past, fire chiefs and other community leaders will be consulted before any action is taken on the emergency medical service.
