Broome County is ready to help the Village of Windsor consolidate Emergency Medical Services in the eastern part of the County.

A request for $40,000 from the Small Community Grant Fund is getting the nod to help pay for equipment like a cardiac monitor linking a patient in an ambulance with the receiving hospital.

The primary service area for Eastern Broome Emergency Services includes the Villages of Deposit, Windsor and Sherman and the Towns of Deposit, Sanford, Scott and Windsor.  The group was formed in March as a partial consolidation of the Deposit Fire Department First Aid and Rescue Company and Windsor Emergency Services.
