, the Madison County Coroner and Director of EMS was the Kiwanis speaker on January 11. He noted that the number of EMS calls in Madison County amounts to nearly 1,000 ambulance runs per month. He also noted that a number of runs have involved young people using a mixture of life threatening drugs. He noted that the number of cases has so increased that it is likely that EMS will build a new facility on Duncannon Lane and will purchase two additional ambulances and hire six additional EMS personnel.
