EMS transport committee to meet

EMS transport board to meet on Monday

The EMS Fire Transport Committee is scheduled to meet from 9 to 11 a.m. Monday in Room 2-304 of the EpiCenter, 13805 58th St. N, Largo. The committee was formed by state Sen. Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater, to choose an accountant to analyze the costs of proposals to change Pinellas County's emergency medical services system.

One proposal, by County Administrator Bob LaSala, would change the funding formulas for paying county-funded paramedics and would reduce the number of emergency vehicles and paramedics. The other, proposed by firefighters Scott Sanford and Jim Millican, would use firefighter/paramedics to take patients to the hospital. The meeting is open to the public.
