Inverness ambulance station to relocate

The company that provides emergency medical services in Citrus soon will have a new Inverness ambulance station. The Nature Coast Emergency Medical Foundation maintains stations throughout the county. The Inverness station was a residence on N Apopka Avenue, but that will change, perhaps as soon as Monday, Nature Coast executive director Teresa Gorentz said. Nature Coast will move down the street to the Inverness fire station at Main Street and Apopka. Gorentz said the county, which owns the building, will charge $300 per month rent, less than half what Nature Coast is paying now in Inverness. Meanwhile, Nature Coast still is seeking a new Beverly Hills station, Gorentz said.
