Meeting to Discuss Emergency Services in Murfreesboro and Rutherford County

Aug 31, 2020 at 06:45 am by WGNS

The City of Murfreesboro will hold a Public Meeting Thursday, Sept. 3, 2020, at 9:00 a.m. to discuss the Murfreesboro and Rutherford County Emergency Services.

While little has been discussed about the upcoming meeting, one of the big topics the city and county are looking at deals with Murfreesboro having their own ambulance service.

If the city has their own ambulance service, it would likely come in the form of a contract between the City of Murfreesboro and a private company to provide ambulance transportation for patients.

If Rutherford County ends ambulance transportation in the city limits, County Mayor Bill Ketron says jobs could be cut.

Again, the meeting is this Thursday morning inside the Murfreesboro Police Headquarters at 9AM.

About those attending the meeting:

The EMS Task Force comprised of four representatives from the City and four representatives from the County, and a facilitator. The four from the City are MFRD Chief Mark Foulks, MFRD Assistant Chief Jeff Wright of the MFRD Medical Services Division, Captain Josh Oliver, and Deputy Director of Information Technology Bill Terry, Public Safety I-T and Communications. 

Location of Meeting:
