Residents in South Big Horn county are receiving assistance from neighboring Park County with their recent concerns regarding ground ambulance service.
Cody Regional Health has expanded their EMS Services to serve the South Big Horn County Rural Health District. This service was previously provided by Guardian EMS Service, in conjunction with South Big Horn County Hospital.
According to a release from Cody Regional Health, Cody’s EMS Director, Phillip Franklin, was approached by the health district when Guardian EMS Service announced they would no longer be providing EMS services as of the beginning of March.
On February 15th, a three-year contract was finalized, and as a result, Cody Regional Health says they will be employing additional EMT’s who will be stationed in Basin 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They will be assigned to respond to 911 calls and transfers in the District, which includes the towns of Basin, Greybull, Shell, Manderson and Hyattville.
