Plan for New Ambulance Station Moves Forward

The Door County Board has set in motion the process that will lead to a new central ambulance station in Sturgeon Bay. The current facility at 319 South 18th Avenue, adjacent to Ministry Door County Medical Center, is more than two decades old and has been deemed inadequate to meet the current and future needs of the Emergency Services Department. Supervisors previously appropriated a million dollars to get the project moving. As approved, the plan calls for a phased in process with elements that include decisions on such things as the scope of the work to be done, site selection and acquisition, budgetary needs and a completion date. Other phases will lead to the retention of a design professional, provide cost estimates, produce construction documents and lead to the erection of a building. Currently, $150,000 has been authorized for phases one and two. As part of the process, the county board also agreed to the creation of an ad hoc EMS study committee during its meeting Tuesday.
