EMS director to give update on billing issues

September 8th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

Allegany County Emergency Services Director James Pyles will provide an update on billing matters involving area volunteer fire and rescue squads on Thursday afternoon. Two weeks ago, volunteers and representatives from fire and rescue squads across the county  packed the meeting of the county commissioners voicing  concerns  for the future of their stations.  Much of the disagreement involves the percentage split that is shared between county EMS responders and the fire and rescue squads. The revenue from insurance billings is currently split depending on who responds to a call. Pyles is listed on Thursday’s commissioners meeting agenda with an update.
