06/04/10 97 W, 1 I - + 16 - 10 Durham County EMS Celebrates 35 Years

From the Durham Herald this week comes a short story on Durham County EMS, which celebrates its 35th year of service. They started May 31, 1975, after the county took over the ambulance service. Then they had six ambulances and 24 emergency medical technicians. Now they have 12 ambulances and about 132 employees, who answered more than 28,000 calls last year. Their funding through the county comes from a trust fund, which was created when Duke and Durham Regional hospitals merged. That and fees charged to users of the ambulance service. Read the story.
