CCEMA is one entity parthat involves both city and county emergency response personnel. Its board has the responsibility of preparing for the worst events that can strike the community at any time. It ought to be able to come up with a viable ambulance plan that serves Logansport and rural Cass County residents better than the current scenario.
The time spent in emergency response is known as “The Golden Hour” for all the doctors, nurses and medical staff people who do everything from CPR to flying patients in a helicopter to transplanting a heart. Local officials are in their own golden hour on the ambulance issue. This is one time the taxpayers don’t want to hear “Take two aspirin and call me tomorrow.”
