Thanks to a rainy June, work on the Pettis County Ambulance District’s first sub-station has been slightly delayed, though progress is being made. During a PCAD Board of Directors meeting Tuesday, board members heard a brief update on the site, which will serve eastern Pettis County.
Dirt work has begun and will continue for the rest of the month, as long as the weather holds out, said PCAD Chairman Greg Nehring. The proposed 4,900-square-foot station will feature living and sleeping quarters, storage space, laundry facilities and a bay capable of holding two ambulances
PCAD Administrator Mike Gardener also told the board he was working with the Windsor High School athletic director to ensure a PCAD ambulance would be available at its three home varsity football games. The board previously discussed the matter when the Windsor Ambulance District shut down earlier this summer with all board members agreeing it was a good idea to offer emergency medical services.
“I have the schedule for the varsity games and right now we’re discussing whether we should extend our services for the junior varsity games too,” Gardner told the board. “I don’t think this is going to be a problem at all to cover; we’ll work it out with the shifts we have scheduled that day.”
Gardner told the board he and the athletic director would stay in contact to discuss final details.
