Lake EMS director Jim Judge presents new service and deployment plan

The transition from Lake-Sumter EMS to Lake EMS, Inc. went very smoothly on October 1. The citizens and visitors in Lake County likely did not notice the change over as they are continuing to be served by the same highly trained staff, treated with the same state-of-the-art emergency medical protocols, and receiving the same compassion and caring for which the former company gained state and national recognition.

Going forward as Lake EMS, there have been some operational changes. The company has rolled out a new dynamic deployment plan to better serve its communities. Details of the cost-effective, innovative deployment plan were discussed at the news conference along with a discussion of the operational review and steps that were taken during the development of the new deployment plan. The media will have an opportunity to ask questions about the new operational structure, the new deployment plan, and any other areas of interest.

The Lake EMS team is dedicated to having the right resources, in the right places, at the right time and will continue to live up to its motto, “In Rhythm with Our Community.” Staff is constantly evaluating the best ways to use resources and making innovations to ensure the company remains a leader in the field of emergency medicine.
