Merrill’s ambulance service is in need of more volunteers.
Carmen Breuer, director of the Merrill Ambulance Service, says the town has entered into a mutual service agreement with Hinton and Le Mars:

OC……..location of the call. :19

Le Mars has just added a new ambulance.
Breuer says while there are eleven volunteers in Merrill, only a few are on duty each month:

OC…….at all times. ;15

Breuer says funding remains an issue as it costs approximately $2500 for one individual to become trained and certified as an EMT.
