On December 6th the Mayor, City Administrator and current EMS Leadership will be attending a meeting of the Kansas Board of Emergency Medical Services (KBEMS) in Topeka. The topic is our City Emergency Services Capabilities – specifically, our ambulance service. During an annual inspection in April 2018, it was noted that Clearwater EMS was not consistent in having a minimum of two certified personnel signed up on a 24/7 coverage roster. This requirement was put in place by KBEMS in 2016. The KBEMS has asked the City to provide a plan to ensure we can comply with the requirement and therefore be able to continue to have an ambulance service. We will appear before the board and present a short term and long term plan to ensure compliance. Following the meeting tomorrow, as the City develops and works through the details of any approved plans we will publish information to the City website. The City currently has trained volunteers that continue to respond and provide coverage to the City.
