(KALAMAZOO, Mich. – Mar. 10, 2016) – Life EMS Ambulance (www.lifeems.com) is pleased to
announce a recent expansion of its primary 911 emergency medical response area in southwest
Michigan to include Alamo Township.
This latest expansion to Life EMS Ambulance’s South Operation follows the November 2015 addition of Kalamazoo Township which, like Alamo, moved to become part of the Kalamazoo Valley Intergovernmental Ambulance Agreement (KVIAA). The KVIAA is the EMS contract authority in Kalamazoo County which currently encompasses the cities of Kalamazoo and Parchment, as well as Cooper, Kalamazoo, Oshtemo, and now Alamo Townships.
The recent expansions of 911 response (Kalamazoo and now Alamo Townships) involve the addition of four full-time medic/EMT positions, as Life EMS Ambulance extends coverage to an additional 26,000 citizens and visitors while seamlessly connecting all of the KVIAA members into a contiguous 911 emergency response area.
“As a locally-owned provider of nationally-recognized emergency services to southwest Michigan for more than 20 years, we are honored to extend coverage to the people of Alamo Township with our highly skilled, compassionate EMS team,” said Mark Meijer, president of Life EMS Ambulance. “We appreciate the confidence that the KVIAA and its newest member, Alamo Township, have demonstrated in Life EMS by entrusting us to care for their community, and reflects our continued leadership in pre-hospital care delivery.”
Added Terry Kizer, fire chief for Alamo Township, “In just the few short weeks that Life EMS Ambulance has provided paramedic coverage to our township, we have already experienced service excellence in some unique and demanding situations.”
