Oklahoma City, OK – An advisory board has backed off asking for a rule change that could have cut ambulance service in rural areas.
The board instead will try to find a legislative solution.
The Oklahoma Emergency Response System and Development Advisory Committee named Betty Roan of Tishomingo to head a subcommittee to ask for help from the Legislature for financially troubled ambulance companies.
The subcommittee also will work on a new rule governing the responsibility of ambulance providers to respond to calls for help outside their service area.
