HAMILTON — This week marks the start of Northstar Paramedic Service’s work in Hamilton.
Northstar will be acting as the Marion County Emergency Medical Service, replacing the former Hamilton EMS Regional Paramedical Services.
According to Hamilton Mayor Bob Page, the city was not satisfied with the time it took for ambulance services to respond.
“The response time is actually the reason we changed ambulances. Our first responders, at my request, had kept a time log on our response time versus the response of our ambulance service,” Page stated to the Journal Record on Aug. 1.
