A paramedic level Advanced Life Support ambulance is stationed at Mile 10 East End Road, as well as ALS jump gear, including cardiac monitors with cardiac pacing and defibrillation capabilities, both on the East End and Diamond Ridge area. We had polled the residents, and overwhelmingly, people were most concerned with Emergency Medical Services, so this is where we started.
There is a station being designed and buildings are being leased until the time that the stations are complete. More equipment is being looked at for purchase in the near future.
At this time, KESA is paying Homer Fire to continue coverage and training for the members, as well as providing insurance and administrative duties, and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
We look forward to working with the Eastland Fire Department, and would like to invite everyone who is concerned to attend the board meetings to stay informed as to what we are doing.
