Rising costs forcing ambulance service to explore alternative funding

Charles City, Iowa – The ambulance service providing emergency medical care to Northeast Iowa could be seeing a change according to city officials.

American Medical Response is changing how the company generates revenue because of rising input costs.

Charles City Administrator Steve Diers tells North Iowa News, AMR had paid the  city and county.

Now that’s changing.


He says all local governments and the service are working together to find the extra money to continue AMR’s service.
