As the Door County Board considers proposals from private contractors for its emergency medical services, some townships like Liberty Grove are standing behind their local crews. The Town of Liberty Grove went on record last week stating they believe the management of the county’s EMS operations should remain local. Town chairperson John Lowry says they pay a substantial amount of money for EMS services and believes they do an excellent job.
The county has said they are doing their due diligence to see if there are potential cost savings available and they have not decided one way or another. Lowry is encouraging other local government bodies to take similar action.
