The good news is the South Shore Fire Department may have found a way to raise an additional $300,000, but the bad news is that money will come from a big jump in ambulance fees. Currently residents seeking “basic life support” services pay $450, and nonresidents pay $650. For those needing “advanced life support” services, residents pay $600 and nonresidents pay $650. Monday, the Mount Pleasant Village Board unanimously approved increases in ambulances fees for BLS to $850 and ALS to $1,000 for residents, and $1,000 for BLS and $1,200 for ALS for nonresidents, effective Jan. 1. For those needing more advanced care, the cost for residents will be $1,100 and for nonresidents will be $1,350.
