Lapeer County Supports Local EMS

On Tuesday, November 8, 2016, voters in Lapeer County, Michigan, approved a ballot proposal to pass a millage that will fund Lapeer County EMS over the next four years. The approval of this millage will not only ensure the survival of Lapeer County EMS, but will also afford the ambulance service provider the opportunity to expand their coverage area and improve the quality of the emergency response services they provide to their communities.

In the months leading up to this vote, members of the International Association of EMTs and Paramedics (IAEP) in Lapeer County worked tirelessly to inform community members about the details of the proposal and to ask for their support.

“Our union members really made this happen,” said IAEP National Representative Nate Morrish-Smith, “the EMS professionals at Lapeer County EMS live and work in the communities in which they serve. They want to provide top quality emergency response care to their patients and their communities.”

Through the strong efforts made by the EMS professionals, and the support of local residents, Lapeer County EMS is adapting a plan for a successful future for their agency. “These men and women are honored to continue serving their community,” said IAEP National Director Phil Petit, “We’re excited to continue working with these dedicated men and women to adapt solid plans to grow and strengthen Lapeer County EMS.”
