Hot Spring County 911 Director Robin Halbert addressed several members of the Hot Spring County Quorum Court and County Judge Bill Scrimshire during Tuesday eveningâ€™s committee meeting about the proposed City of Malvern exclusive ambulance service and what it would mean to the county. The City of Malvern is currently in contract negations with LifeNet from Hot Springs after the council agreed to accept the ambulance committeeâ€™s recommendation to give an exclusive contract to LifeNet instead of ProMed.
Halbert told the justices that the service would be similar to the current agreement with Baptist in Arkadelphia, who services the Bismarck area. He also told the court that there are four ambulance services who currently service Hot Spring County: Guardian from Glenwood services the Bonnerdale area, Baptist from Arkadelphia services the Bismarck area, LifeNet from Hot Springs services the 70 West area and ProMed services the Malvern area and eastward.
