Hancock County Seeks Ambulance Solution

Carthage, IL – Hancock County's Board Chairman will appoint a special committee this week. The group will make recommendations on how to keep ambulance service available in the county. The county holds the license for ambulance opeerations in Warsaw, LaHarpe, Carthage and the Augusta-Bowen area. Board member Ken Nudd says the county might have to go to a paid service to circumvent problems with the smaller number of volunteers able to take the training or make runs. The special committee is to make its recommendation to the full county board by November.
