MINA - A lack of emergency medical technicians within the Findley Lake Fire Department is forcing Mina town officials to look elsewhere.
The town has asked to contract with the village of Sherman for its emergency medical services. Emergency medical technicians, or EMTs, from the Stanley Hose Co. already travel to Mina several times a year in a mutual aid agreement pact with Findley Lake - the sole fire department in the town.
The contract, according to Stanley Hose Fire Chief Matt Oehlbeck, would provide a financial incentive in exchange for the expanded coverage. The arrangement would cover fuel costs and equipment for the Sherman fire department.
