Sanborn In Need Of Ambulance Volunteers

Sanborn, IA (KICD)–A local community is in need of ambulance volunteers.

Sanborn Ambulance Director Paul Schuler tells KICD News that volunteerism for this type of position seems to be a thing of the past.

Schuler says they are having a problem with coverage.

For example when the town of Sanborn is covered by local volunteers the response time averages out to 4 minutes. When relying upon another area ambulance to respond, that number jumps to 13 minutes and possibly longer.

Anyone interested in volunteering can get in touch with Sanborn City Hall. EMT certification, which is paid for, is offered at Northwest Iowa Community College. Classes start in the middle of September.
