06/08/10 151 W - + 13 - 5 Changes in Garner

Time to praise the press. The Garner Citizen has been doing a great job these days, covering recent changes to emergency services in Garner. Today there's a good feature on the EMS merger, which brought both personnel and equipment from Garner EMS and Rescue Squad into Wake County EMS effective May 31.

The Citizen is also reporting this week on Town Council requests to merge the rescue function of the squad with the Garner Fire Department. The council seeks employment for the current rescue employees, as well as the transfer of town-funded assets. The request comes in the wake of administrative changes announced at Garner Fire Department, and the retirement of long-time Fire Chief Phil Mitchell.

Check out the Citizen web site for those stories. Timely and balanced reporting, there. More perspectives and retrospectives later, as we watch and wish the best for the evolution of Garner emergency services.

Thanks for reading and sharing, Mike.
