Ambulance staffing changes proposed



August 17, 2016 - 12:00 AM

Iola Fire Chief Tim Thyer told Allen County commissioners Tuesday countywide ambulance is short-handed based on eight-person shifts and that he would prefer a return to nine on duty.

At one time shifts had 10 people on duty, and having nine would permit more latitude in dealing with staffing issues, Thyer said.

Thyer said currently four people are stationed in Iola and two each in Humboldt and Moran, with a paramedic assigned to each station.
