Cameron Resigns as Ambulance Coordinator

Jul 19, 2012

Perry Cameron has tendered his resignation with the Hancock County Board. The board had given him a week to resign from his position as ambulance coordinator or be fired.

The board was unhappy with progress the district has made in solving a number of problems. These range from sloppy paperwork to crew members who are not keeping up with their required continuing education.

Hancock County's ambulance service has been operating under a “Plan of Corrections” since January to address the problems.
