Ambulance calls exceeding projections for new service

The number of calls being received by the Hopkins County Hospital District’s Emergency Medical Services  in Franklin County at the end of its first full month of service exceeded the projected figures by just over 40 percent, according to their report to the Franklin County Commissioners Court Monday.

Services to Franklin County citizens were assumed by the Hopkins County EMS in mid-December in order to avoid any holiday confusion. By the end of January, the service had responded to 168 calls, including emergency calls and medical transfers. Hopkins County EMS projected 68 calls a month on average.
