The South Shore Fire Department is getting a new emergency medical services station somewhere on the village’s north side. Money for the station is part of the 2018 village budget adopted Wednesday. The station will cost $500,000, and the department will hire six more paramedics, working two at a time in 24-hour shifts, to respond to calls primarily on the northeast part of Mount Pleasant. Fire Chief Robert Stedman said about 81 percent of calls in that area, which nearly amounts to one-quarter of the total service area, are related to EMS.
