Ambulance Fees Increase!
In order to keep up with escalating costs, ambulance fees will increase in Templeton on January 1, 2017.
Basic Life Support (BLS) calls will increase from $736.26 to $1,000
Advanced Life Support(ALS) callswill increase from $874.32 to $1,750
ALS 2 is a new rate level and will cost $2,250 per transport.
The Templeton selectmen have asked for a cost analysis to determine how much money the rate increases will bring to the department.
Will Templeton still have a certified ALS service, if the Police Chief is the made the department head during consolidation? Will the money earned by the ambulance service stay with the ambulance service? Stay tuned!
