The Village of Sister Bay wants the Door County Emergency Medical Service to stay in public hands. The village board supported a resolution similar to the one drafted by the Door County Fire Chiefs Association. Sister Bay Fire Chief Chris Hecht says that puts the village among a growing number of communities opposed to EMS being operated by a private contractor.
Door County advertised for requests-for-qualifications from potential private contractors about two months ago. County officials wanted to see whether EMS could be operated more cost-effectively. Those requests are being received until the end of this month.
