Ambulance service tax increase

In an emergency situation when someone has been injured, a call is placed to 911, where first responders such as Emergency Medical Technicians and Paramedics are dispatched to the scene.
To get to the accident victim, the ambulance service needs to have reliable emergency vehicles with modern equipment manned by competent personnel.
And to accomplish this, it takes money, said Casey County EMS Director Charles Shepard.
“That's why we're asking for a tax rate increase,” Shepard said, referring to the Casey County Ambulance Board taxing district's recommendation to raise the tax rate.
