The Doddridge County Commission would like to merge the two ambulance service agencies in the county in order to save money and provide better service.

Board members from the Doddridge County EMS and the Doddridge County Ambulance Authority met with the county commission Wednesday night. The group heard from Harrison County Emergency Squad Executive Director Rick Rock, who offered to help advise the county with a proposed merger. Among Rock's suggestions was the a new organization be formed with both current organizations contributing to it.

He said the county should look at the assets and the facilities available and decide what makes the most sense moving forward.

"It's something we're going to have to at it, for sure. And it's going to take a lot of determination on a lot of people's accounts and it's going to take a lot of work from the board of directors of each organization to do that," said William Hamilton, Doddridge County EMS President.

"Combining, as long as there is a profit margin on both sides, they could come together and use the money to lower that payment that they county has to make. It would be a good thing and if everything is laid out evenly on the table and both sides work well together, it could come out to be a positive thing," said Randy Flinn, Executive Director of Doddridge County Ambulance Authority.

Both boards will meet then inform the county commission if they are in favor of a merger.
