A community in Wexford County is concerned about their emergency response times after an ambulance company merge.
In December, Northflight EMS merged with Mobile Medical Response (MMR), serving Manistee, Wexford and Grand Traverse Counties.
Since then, MMR has made some changes, eliminating an on-call ambulance at the Colfax-Greenwood Township Fire Department.
“Have left our community hanging,” says Shelly Bigelow, trustee for the Colfax-Greenwood Township fire board.
Before, Northflight had two ambulances in Cadillac, one Manton, which was a combination of paid staff and on call, and an on-call ambulance at the Colfax-Greenwood Fire Department.
Now, Wexford County is left with just two stationed in Cadillac.
“We had an on-call service for community that made everything a lot easier for everyone, and when MMR bought out Northflight, they took that ambulance out, it is no longer,” says Bigelow.
