Sheriff pitches new ambulance center



April 24, 2018 - 11:00 PM

Allen County Sheriff Bryan Murphy proposed county commissioners build a new ambulance station just south of LaHarpe complete with a new radio transmission tower to relay signals from the 911 dispatch center.

The site would occupy 15 to 20 acres, Murphy said, and be a better location for ambulance services to Humboldt and Moran.

Murphy also suggested building a facility where detainees could be housed temporarily before their transfer to the county jail. The additional structure could serve as a central dispatch point for public works vehicles, particularly road graders that patrol rock roads on a periodic schedule.
