(LaPorte, IN) - A new ambulance base in Rolling Prairie has received a financial boost.
LaPorte Hospital is donating $25,000 toward the cost.
The announcement was made by LaPorte Hospital president/CEO Ashley Dickinson during
Wednesday’s LaPorte County Commissioners meeting.
LaPorte County government was recently given land by the state to build the EMS station
west of U.S 20 and State Road 2.
Construction could start later this year.
Commissioner Rich Mrozinski said the first EMS station to serve eastern LaPorte County will greatly lower response times because that area is now served by the ambulance base in the city of LaPorte.
