Daily Breeze: “The City Council is expected to decide Tuesday night whether McCormick Ambulance should replace Gerber Ambulance Service beginning in December. The city has the option of extending that contract for four additional years.
The city contracts with an ambulance service to transport patients to the hospital after they have been treated by paramedics, allowing paramedic vans to return to service sooner. Additionally, the city’s ambulance provider handles customer billing for paramedic service.
In a staff report recommending McCormick be awarded the city’s business, Fire Chief William Racowschi said it scored the most points among five companies responding to the city’s request for contract proposals. Those bids were analyzed by a four-person evaluation committee.”
