(Lander, Wyo.) - The revised contract between the county and Air Medical Resource Group, Inc. (Guardian) to take over ground ambulance services in the county has now been posted on the main page of the county's website.
Among the changes to the document was the withdrawal of providing ambulance
flight insurance for all county residents. Guardian now must also maintain
its own 24-hour a day 911 dispatch services, or contract for those services
from the Sheriff's Office Dispatch Center.
The company will be penalized if 70 percent of its call response time is
more than 20 minutes.
Other aspects of the contract were left intact, including the fee levels
charged for services.
Guardian still has the right to acquire the ground ambulance system and its
assets after five years.
Each party has the right to terminate the agreement with 90 days notice.
The newly revised contract was finalized at this week's commission meeting
and, after a glitch with the county's web site was fixed, it is now
available for public comment.
Written comments will be received through March 18th with a decision to be
made at the commission's March 22nd meeting.
