County leaders open new EMS post
Sedgwick County leaders on Tuesday opened the newest Emergency Medical Service (EMS) Post 15, located at 3575 N. Webb Road.
EMS Post 15 is a 2,998-square-foot, pre-engineered steel structure with double drive-thru bays. It will be staffed 12 hours a day, 7 days a week and will have the capacity to house two 24/7 crews and ambulances, if needed in the future. Sedgwick County EMS responds to an average of 175 requests for service a day and more than 62,000 responses a year.
“This new EMS Post and the ambulance in Garden Plain are welcome additions to our dedication to public safety,” said Chairman David Dennis. “Sedgwick County continuously looks for ways to enhance services and support for our residents.”
MultiCon, Inc. and Krehbiel Architecture were selected as the general contractor and architect for this project. The project took seven months to complete with a budget of $1.4 million. EMS Post 15 will be the 16th EMS post in Sedgwick County.
